Critical Evaluation

A. Overall a great page, can not pick much wrong with it. Well set out, great diagrams and images, good clearly understandable text and well done references. Just noticed no glossary probably a good idea to add one.

B. Really, good page. Very well set out, not too many headings, which makes it look much neater. The links to individual pages are a good idea. Images look great. And good reference list!


--Vincent Lee 12:40, 19 March 2009 (EST) MAKE SURE:

  • Images start with 'z'
  • Copyright free
  • Structure and function
  • Dynamic processes
  • Current research and where we are at
  • Timeline - when and what was discovered?
  • Try PubMed and cite/ reference properly
  • Can use images on wiki, where appropriate

--Mark Hill 13:35, 19 March 2009 (EST) Moved your microscopy assessment here. Microscopy - This link will take you to the electron microscope unit at UNSW. Electron microscopes in UNSW

--Vincent Lee 22:08, 30 April 2009 (EST) Moved this from 'page' to 'discussion'.

Our group has chosen to do: The Cell Cycle

  • Tom will cover Gap 0 - Gap 1 phase
  • Larissa will cover the Synthesis phase
  • Vincent will cover Gap 2 phase
  • Jason will cover the Metaphase (mitosis) phase

Introduction (Draft)

German Pathologist Rudolf Virchow’s 1885 realisation that cells only arise from pre-existing cells sparked the beginning of an intense investigation into the cell cycle, which is still as active and dynamic today (Alberts, Bray, Hopkin, Johnson, Lewis, Raff, Roberts & Walter, 2004). Since this time, many discoveries and advances have been made in our understanding of the cell cycle. These will be touched upon, along with descriptions of the cycle in the following passages.

Re: Research Articles

Hi Team, it's Jason here. Just wanted to tell you guys that I have a few articles that may be useful for our project, mostly general articles concerning the whole cell cycle, so we can all use them. I'll try and find more tonight and I'll bring them in tomorrow. Also bring a usb so that I can give you all copies or if you prefer I can email them to you tomorrow as well. See you all in class.

Hey, Jason and others. Yeah I have found some information/ articles that may be useful. If you guys could let me know ur e-mail, I would gladly send and share these. Cheers,

P.S. Hey Jason don't forget to put ur signature thing so we know who and when you left the msg!! --Vincent Lee 20:04, 1 April 2009 (EST)

Hi Guys, Do any of you have any old 'historic' articles on the cell cycle? I want to know what the first sort of research and findings were? Thanks again for the articles, Jason. --Tom Kural 18:42, 2 April 2009 (EST)

Hi Team, I've finished my section (G1/G0). Do you want to meet up so we can upload it and you guys can get a feel to how i've set things out? --Tom Kural 12:51, 4 April 2009 (EST)

Hey guys, I have provided some links to websites with good description/ animation/ images/ info on cell cycle. Hope this will help you better understand the cell cycle and help you in writing your section.

I will update if I find other good sites... --Vincent Lee 09:24, 6 April 2009 (EST)

Hey Guys I've started looking up some info for cell synthesis i have done a basic draft for it already,Tom if you upload your set up in draft form then i can add to it and set mine up to match yours. let me know when you do, will see you tomorrow. --Larissa Govender 11:43, 7 April 2009 (EST)

Hey team, I have uploaded some diagrams which I drew on paint. The first one illustrates the time frame, i.e., a typical 24hr cell cycle, and the others are the different phases. The last image is for Tom cause he needed a diagram to illustrate the G0 to G1 phase.... Any probs or questions, let me know. Cheers, --Vincent Lee 12:25, 8 April 2009 (EST)

TOM - I have posted an Intro to Cell Cycle and G1, with Vince's images! --Tom Kural 12:30, 30 April 2009 (EST)

Vincent - I've modified the images on the wiki page, identifing that they are illustrated by us. --Vincent Lee 12:36, 30 April 2009 (EST)

Larissa - I'l be uploading my part this arfternoon from my USB! --Larissa Govender 12:37, 30 April 2009 (EST)

Links to few articles! (From Lab 7) - By Tom, Larissa and Vincent

--Vincent Lee 12:48, 30 April 2009 (EST)

hey guys i only added the first part of the synthesis section because i found another article this afternoon that shows the molecular basis of replication more clearly so i need to restructure what i wrote will post it by Monday with the links --Larissa Govender 18:35, 30 April 2009 (EST)

Hey guys, I have edited our page, dividing our info so far into paragraphs and resized the images too to fit the paragraphs. Let me know what you think! and also Tom did you want to put those lines inbetween? P.S I am also adding my part in too. --Vincent Lee 22:05, 30 April 2009 (EST)

Hey guys I found a way of writing G1 as G1, i.e. writing the number in subscript!!! Can you edit your section with this when you get a chance? Cheers --Vincent Lee 22:25, 30 April 2009 (EST)

Hey team, sorry I havn't been able to see you guys or contacted you guys in a while, I was in a bit of an accident. I'll be uploading my section and pulling my weight throughout this weekend as i recover. Again I apologize for putting such a load on the rest of you. --Jason de Castro 12:49PM, 1 May 2009 (EST)

Hey Jason, sorry to hear about you being in an accident. Wishing you a speedy recovery. --Tom Kural 12:55, 4 May 2009 (EST)

Hey guys, I've put up my section now in the next few days I'll also put up a few images like Vincent for mitosis that I'm making just so we stay clear of the copyrights. Also I've added my reference onto your list Tom and thank you for the well wishes, hope to see you all this week sporting my new battle scars. --Jason de Castro 3:32PM, 4 May 2009 (EST)

Hey guys I put my final version of the G2 phase on our page. Please read and feedbacks welcome. Also, i think we might need few more images or videos on our page. The bottom half looks a bit dull and boring with just text... Other than that i think our content is good and informative! P.S. Hey Jason, hope ur doing well after the accident. See you soon in class. --Vincent Lee 18:10, 4 May 2009 (EST)

hey guys: i added to both the abnormalities section and the checkpoints section. there are no real checkpoints in the s-phase s its linked to the g1 checkpoint so i gave a brief intro to checkpoints instead, and added to Tom's bit feel free to edit it,. i also left a space for Jason to add his checkpoint ie. m-phase, just touching up some other things before i add them to the s-phase section actually i'll get vince to do it because its a diagram, have a good weekend. --Larissa Govender 22:18, 14 May 2009 (EST)

Hey Larissa, no worries with uploading the diagram. just make sure its copyright free ey, and make sure you note where you get it from (the source) so we can write it when we upload it. Also, guys I have edited all our images with the information required in - 'uploading images', i.e. title, legend, based on, copright statement, etc. If you upload anymore, don't forget to do this.... Also, the referencing required according to Mark is different to the one we use, should we change to referencin used in pubmed? --Vincent Lee 01:12, 19 May 2009 (EST)

thanks Vince, I'll bring the image in on thursday. referencing is suppose to be APA format i think- im actually not really sure about this one we might have to speak to Mark. see ya thursday --Larissa Govender 16:59, 19 May 2009 (EST)

is it APA format? because i read it somewhere that it was suppose to 'Pubmed' format.....? --Vincent Lee

Hey Vincent I used one of the cell cycle images you made for my individual page, I hope that's alright. --Jason de Castro 17:56, 25 May 2009 (EST)

Hi Jason and Larissa - can you two please upload some images for you sections and Jason could you write something brief about checkpoint in the M pahse (even if there are no checkpoints in this section say so). And anyone please feel free to add to the 'abnormalities' section and the 'timeline'. --Tom Kural 15:35, 26 May 2009 (EST)

Jason & Larissa you guys need to put your references in alphabetical order, with links to journals. --Tom Kural 20:40, 26 May 2009 (EST)

Hey guys, I have added/ expanded the timeline part and placed it before the 'cell cycle', after introduction along with history and current research.... Also added more images, especially for mitosis as the second half looked very text-heavy... I have also edited our referencing to 'Pubmed format' as required, for all of the contents, so if you change or add more information please follow this format (if you don;t know how, just copy the format in any section and replace with your source, or if you really get stuck let me know!!). P.S I fiddled around with the formatting of our page, what do you think? i.e. where images are, paragraphs, headings, etc etc? feedbacks plz --Vincent Lee 02:10, 27 May 2009 (EST)

hey guys, i fixed up my references and added some pictures to the synthesis phase, i also added some more information that related to it. i have never had so much trouble with attaching pictures to a project before but i think i did it right, ..hopefully.everything looks pretty good though. anyway see you tomorrow --Larissa Govender 02:40, 27 May 2009 (EST)

ok guys the glossary is up if there are any other words you think we need to define just let me know --Larissa Govender 11:47, 31 May 2009 (EST)

I put some words up too, did you use them too? cheers, --Vincent Lee 20:12, 31 May 2009 (EST)
