Talk:2009 Group 10 Project

From CellBiology

Group Peer Review

A.This is a well organized and illustrated page for the following reasons. First, the layout of the page is easy to navigate with subdivisions, such as introduction, history, cytoskeleton, etc. Second, the information is easily understood and comprehensive, this indicates extensive research. Thirdly, the diagrams give a in depth understanding of the text.

However, this page can be improved through the following points. First, there is a lack of information on the second part of the topic, ie. the cellular structure of the cell. You might like to provide a brief outline of information such as mitochondria, nucleus, smooth and rough endoplasmic reticulum, etc. Second, you might like to add further subheadings to the sections such as intermediate filaments, abnormalities and current research, as this will make the information more concise and easier to read.

B)In terms of the criterion that was set by Dr Hill you have fulfilled many of them. Such as: the inclusion of hand-drawn diagrams, links, correct referencing and a glossary. I agree with the comments posted above, congratulations on a well done page!

Group Response to Feedback

Thank you all for your very nice comments and constructive criticism. As for outlining information for the mitochondria, nucleus, ERs and other organelles, we did not cover it in the topic because the scope of the project was the shape of the cell as a whole unit. It will be an interesting area to research, however as I have said, the project mainly focused on the shape of the cell as a whole and not the shape of its organelles. As for the abnormalities and current research being provided under each cytoskeletal component, we have put all the current research into one section (we did the same with the abnormalities). We just thought it would be useful to put all abnormalities together and all the current research together, just for a better outlining and structure of the project. We very much appreciate for taking your time to read out project and thank you for the feedback you have given us! --Danielle Martinez 21:13, 2 June 2009 (EST)

Sutdent Discussion

--Hey Joe, just to let you know that i am deleting the signature parts (i.e. your name) at the end of each of the paragraph that you did. this is for the reason that he said we need not put signatures on our part in the actual project page (we just need it in discussion). Reminding everyone: this assessment is technically due tomorrow. so we have to work out all the final changes. I will proofread everything by tonight just to make sure everything is intact. Please add your references in the reference list at the bottom of the page. and also make sure you have copyright permission for the pictures you used! cheers! --Danielle Martinez 15:13, 27 May 2009 (EST)

--Hey guys, just reminding everyone that this is due 2 days from now! We should all be done at least with our parts by tonight so that on wednesday night we can do the necessary last minute revisions. Also, if it isn't too much to ask, can you guys get all your parts uploaded by tonight (or tomorrow noon at the latest)? This is for the reason that I want to have a read of everything before we actually submit it (aka. proofread it). Also, just reminding you to add all your references below (just follow the format of the existing references there). I am sorry if it sounds demanding, I'm getting stressed. I have another pathology essay due friday! Good luck to us and hopefully we can finalise everything here in time! Go Team!!! :) --Danielle Martinez 16:34, 26 May 2009 (EST)

-- Hey guys, I'll be putting up my part soon. Just writing it up at the moment, so don't stress that im not doing any work. Loc

--Joe, I just edited the formatting of the actin filaments part. So that our website has kind of uniformity in it. But then again it's not yet the final format of the page. I just thought of organising it so we can clearly see headings and subheadings. I did not change any content, just the headings :) --Danielle Martinez 21:38, 15 April 2009 (EST)

-- Hey guys, Dr. Hill suggested I research a broader topic for my portion of the project. I know we had allocated 1 larger topic and 1 smaller topic to everyone do research but I was wondering if instead of figuring out a larger topic for me to do if I can just do all of the smaller topics we talked about. I dont know exactly what they were so if you guys are okay with it just let me know which topics you were doing and I can do all of them as my part of the project. Let me know what you think!--Makenzie Elliott 11:40, 19 April 2009 (EST)

--I am okay with that Makenzie. If i am not mistaken the small parts are: Student designed diagrams, timeline, abnormalities, and definition of terms? I am not quite sure, but I will try to remember and I will let you know as soon as possible.--Danielle Martinez 19:43, 21 April 2009 (EST)

--Also, Loc/Lok (not sure :P) I just wanted to clarify, you are to do function of the cytoskeleton right? I just wanted to suggest, it might be good if you include how the 3 elements of the cytoskeleton collaborate and how the extensive network of the 3 elements of the cytoskeleton help cell shape. I particularly found the Microtubules lecture of the guest speaker helpful. Remember he had a slide of how microtubules are arranged in interphase cells, dividing cells, ciliated cells and neurons? (I just thought it was rather helpful) --Danielle Martinez 19:43, 21 April 2009 (EST)

--Hello Team! How is everyone going? Just reminding you that this project is due in 12 days. and I know you guys have been busy doing your individual projects. I think our content is pretty substantial. We might just need more pictures. and Makenzie, you should start putting up stuff since he will be marking it soon. Is anyone struggling with their part? if you are, just let everyone in the team know so we can all help each other. and Joe, thanks for putting up the pictures! --Danielle Martinez 17:00, 16 May 2009 (EST)

--Just reminding everyone about their references. I already started the list and you can just add yours. Please note that it is in ALPHABETICAL ORDER. All the best! --Danielle Martinez 23:55, 16 May 2009 (EST)

Supervisor Discussion

--Mark Hill 14:07, 19 March 2009 (EST)I moved microscopy here.

--Mark Hill 16:46, 25 March 2009 (EST)Student 3235019 seems to have done some preliminary work with beginning content on this project page. Note that you will have to clearly indicate all sources used in preparing your project and text should not simply be cut and pasted from another source.

--Mark Hill 07:51, 27 March 2009 (EST) Good additions so far, please make sure that you are not simply cut-n-pasting text from other sites/sources. I also see no reference to the source(s) of your materials you have used so far? At this stage it can be just a weblink or the Pubmed reference as we have not yet set up the referencing option on pages. You also do not need to put your signature on Project Page materials, just on this page. On your project page just fill in the Summary: box with a brief description of what you have done.

--Mark Hill 13:53, 29 March 2009 (EST) Though bacterial cell shape is determined mainly by the cell wall structure externally (like a crab) rather than by an internal (cyto)skeleton, which they lack. I guess you would need to differentiate between the two methods of shape regulation.
