Talk:2009 Group 9 Project

From CellBiology


A. a few words ie 'xylem' are not in the glossary. really good use of diagrams, the references from 'image of membrane development' has not been given permission from the original researcher. are any of these images individually created? perhaps some more subheadings of bold titles would make it a little easier to navigate through. did you find any current research on the nucleus, could have added another dimension to you assessment. the location of the diagrams makes it easy to refer to them, but you could number you figures and refer to them in the text.

Student A from group 10 (z3295026) Peer Review- Group 9 The group significantly has express the functional classification of the nucleus and it specific characteristics, the history has describe the topic well, as it explain the overall histological development of the nucleus , depicting the basis of the topic which contribute to additionally to the topic, the topic is related in detail which reviewed in each component under each subheading, the structure and function has been explained well, which analyses the topic in a good way. The diagrams upload have been related to the topic , relating the topic as the review is able to understand the structural component through the diagrams. The glossary is extremely useful as it depict specific undefined term that the individuals don’t understand, so that component of your project was useful to some extent. The linkage to the individual projects has been significantly included in a relevant way in the topic of the nucleus which is great. A variety of resources and references were include to backup the nucleus topic which was extremely relevant. The drawn image by and individual member from the group, which I was unable to find need to included (sorry if I was unable to find it .....May it might be there, I could see it) overall the topic of the nucleus was summarized to a great extent.

Student B from group 10 (z3280894) Topic- The Nucleus. Very well done overall but I would suggest rearranging some of your subheadings and add a distinct section on overall structure of the nucleus, maybe just a layout of it? The pictures look great and your hand drawing looks nice. I would suggest adding a picture in the first section of the introduction to catch the readers eye. I am very impressed by your referencing and the research that you have done. Great job on relating the nucleus to disease and abnormalities. The glossary could be expanded a little more though. Define words that you may know but a common reader would not. All members of the group have a link to their individual project but it is hard to find. Try making the actual word of your protein the link so it’s easier to find throughout the text. Also, some of the members do not have links from their individual projects back to the group projects. Overall, amazing job! I think you know your information well and did a really great job in referencing and research.

Student C from group 10 (z3235019) The topic was well spelled out in the project page. Also, the multiple sections and subheadings that explained the techinacalities and great detail provided was prrof that the group had a good understanding of the topic. The project went into great depth in researching the information about the nucleus. The strcuture was well explained and accompanying diagrams were really helpful in the understanding of the structure of the nucleus. The function of the nucelus was pretty straightforward, although some detail might be added to this section. You might want to talk about the importance of these functions and why they are vital in the survival of the cell. Th student drawn diagram is really good and helped int he explantion of nuclear import. However, you might have to clearly spell out what the alpha (yellow) and beta (violet) subunits are. That is, what exactly are they? The glossary was sufficiently helpful in the understanding of the technicalities of the project. It gave a comprehensive definition of the terms used in the project. All individual projects were linked from the group page. The references is evidently tediously made. Images are very useful in the explanation of the topic. Images have copyright permissions which is good. Good job Group 9!

Student C from group 10 (z3186582) Your page is quite well presented and there are plenty of information to read. The function section could have been elaborated, or linked to the information further down the page, like DNA replication. I found that there were too many unnecessary information. Overall the project was excellent!

--Mark Hill 23:49, 12 April 2009 (EST)OK Jessica and joel, where are your contributions? When I check back here after mid-semester I want to see some entries from you both.


In regards to referencing, please add the references using the <ref> and </ref> tags

  • z3224479 will fix all the referencing for the Group Project to a concise and legible format similar to the other Wikipedia websites. Therefore add the reference in the tags I have mentioned via the Son of Citation Machine after each paragraph and I will convert it such that it will be grouped in the base of the page

Group discussion

I have difficulty in reconstructing this sentence as part of the function of Cajal bodies : Guiding RNAs in site-specific synthesis of 2’-O-ribose-methylated nucleotides and pseudouridines in the RNA polymerase II-transcribed U1, U2, U4 and U5 spliceosomal small nuclear RNAs (snRNAs). How can I rewrite it in my own words? (yvonne)

  • In addition, a secondary purpose of the Cajal Bodies involves directing the production of 2'-O-ribose-methylated nucleotides and psuedoruidines with the presence of polyerase II-transcribed spliceosomal small nuclear RNAs.(Colin)

Hey guys, just wondering what are we going to do about all those references that have been pulled from the encyclopedia of life sciences? Is there alternate journal articles that contain basically the same info?? (Joel)

  • Joel, these articles can only create an understanding for the subtopics that you will be undertaking. Please talk to me during the laboratory (Colin)

I've drawn my picture, but i dont know how to upload it :( (Y)

Hi, for this image : Image:ZRobert brown botaniker.jpg Could you please state/reference where you get it from, although there's no copyright with it, you can explain it in the summary coloumn. I made few changes on the arrangement so the name of Robert Brown can be shown there.
