• Minor grammatical errors might be worth being investigated, e.g. ER needs to be stated what it stands for before being used, cis and in vitro needs to be in italic etc.

• Also, too much text/ big paragraphs - looks text heavy, maybe need to cut some stuff out too (word count was 4151 excluding glossary and ref.)

• At times it was hard to follow – use of sub headings; should compartments be within structure?

• Glossary is well structured and informative, and aids in understanding the terms

• Re: images, well drawn student figure but some words are bit hard to read.

• Some subheadings could do with some supporting images. This will also break the text up a bit too.

• No links section and it would be good if the references were alive (i.e. link to paper). Also, no link to individual page


--Chew Tan 11:38, 29 May 2009 (EST) Hey anna, your protein modifications part are supposed to move into inside golgi part. Thank you.

--Anna Cao 22:14, 27 May 2009 (EST)Yeah, you can show me tomorrow. For now, it doesn't matter if our page is not 100% done right? We're probably going to be criticized on our referencing but we can fix that before the final due date. Hope you guys aren't stressing out as I am!

--Chew Tan 23:25, 26 May 2009 (EST)Yeah i reckon the referencing part is hard but i'm happy to show you on thursday on how to make the same references only appear once. Anna i think you might just need to sum up or make and intro of the functions and leave the details. Hope we all can make a good group wiki page eh. :)

--Melissa McNaught Hey guys, have uploaded my research, but have had lots of trouble with the wiki referencing, so I just placed my reference list a the bottom, using in text citations. Hope that's ok.

--Anna Cao 11:36, 26 May 2009 (EST) Hey guys, I am having the same problem with the referencing that I had with my individual project. The same references in the texts appear as separate ones in the reference list. Has this happened to you guys? If not maybe you can tell me what I am doing wrong. =[

Ive got a question about my and melissa's part, whats the difference between function and what happens inside the golgi, so far i've been working on in the sorting of protein in the trans golgi and transportation, my number is 0402613 638 if any one wants to talk to me about it. Im keen to get into function just don't want to double over what mellisa is getting into basically.

Miro Halford: Yeh im keen to do what u said chew, ive been researching a fair bit recently and will get into it tonight.

--Anna Cao 12:02, 21 May 2009 (EST)I started adding the references. It seems to take me a long time and I'll try finish posting my references soon. =(

--Melissa McNaught Hey guys, pretty sure we don't have to write 1500 words each, I was under the impression it's 1500 words for each group.. Sorry I haven't got my part up properly yet, will do by tonight hopefully

--Chew Tan 20:21, 19 May 2009 (EST) Dear Miro, Just to follow up what you asked me today, I think in the 'inside Golgi' part, you should include the transport through the golgi occurs by anterograde transport, cisternal maturation, glycosylation, modification of carbohydrates and lipids. And you are doing the 'outside Golgi' as well. Please maybe get Mellisa to help you if she doesn't mind cause each of us should write 1500 words. Do feel free to ask me if you still have any problem. Thank you

--Chew Tan 21:14, 18 May 2009 (EST)yeah directly on the page. we don't need to arrange them according to alphabetical order. Hey other members, please do contribute as soon as possible or else Mark Hill will mark us down. Thank you.

--Anna Cao 18:19, 18 May 2009 (EST)Hi all, I'll be posting all my references up on Wednesday. Where do you want me to post it? In this discussion thread or directly on the page?

--Chew Tan 20:31, 14 May 2009 (EST)

Hey members,

Hope everyone is doing their part... we need to compile our references, so do upload your stuff as soon as possible, so that we can make edit to things that we might left out... Thank you...

Have done work on the trans Golgi network, will upload tonight

--Anna Cao 18:19, 26 April 2009 (EST) Guys, I think we should aim to complete our project soon. Please add your respective research to our site. Does anyone know whether the 1200 word limit for each of us include the referencing?

--Anna Cao 09:03, 24 April 2009 (EST) hey guys, I have added more content to my component. Shirley pointed out that we have to contribute 1500 words each to this student project. I am still not close to this goal but I'll get there soon. Keep me updated on your own research process. Also my protein for the individual project is finalized to be GRASP66.

--Anna Cao 20:11, 17 April 2009 (EST) Hi again, did anyone come across the "Phosphatidylinositol-4-phosphate function" of the Golgi apparatus during their research? I found a paper on it but I don't quite understand it because it talks about genetics. Would anyone like to look into this further? To make up for my lack of contribution in terms of content, I'd like to do some research on the disorders associated with a malfunction in the Golgi apparatus. If this clashes with somebody else's intentions please let me know asap.

--Anna Cao 20:01, 17 April 2009 (EST) Hi guys! Wow Shirley, good on you for doing so much work on the page! I've decided on KIFC3 motor protein for my individual project. Currently, I am finding it difficult to do research on the location and attachments of the Golgi apparatus because I can't find many papers that specifically talk about this. If you have come across anything, please let me know. Also, if there is anything else you'd like me to research, I'd be happy to do my share.

--Chew Tan 14:30, 17 April 2009 (EST) Hi guys, i think we should move out timeline part from the page to here. I will move and edit them and see below. Please do feel free to add all your timeline as well. I also made some edit in this discussion page to make it look nicer. Thank you.

--Chew Tan 14:06, 16 April 2009 (EST) hey guys, i think i want to change my protein to golgin p115. Hope you guys doing good so far.

--Mark Hill 00:00, 13 April 2009 (EST) OK you guys need to be talking some more about what you are doing in a coordinated way. Feel free to post whatever you need to here on the discussion page it makes it easier for everyone to see what is going on.

--Chew Tan 01:07, 2 April 2009 (EST)Shirley Chew Gee TAN I think we have to go into molecular details, maybe just state the enzymes or proteins that are involved if neccessary, while the details of any protein shall be our individual project, what may others think?

I roughly did some research and came out this outline of our project

- How golgi apparatus being formed, what support them? (ANNA)

- Compartments: their structure, function, (MELISSA)

- Transport from ER to Golgi (SHIRLEY)

- What happen inside golgi - Leave golgi (MIRO)

Please do feel free to give any comments. I hope this may help us to delegate our part tomorrow.

By the way, i may choose protein kinase D as my protein for my individual project.

Thank you.

--Mark Hill 13:37, 19 March 2009 (EST) I fixed your project heading layout and moved microscopy here.

--Anna Cao 21:48, 30 March 2009 (EST) I'll be doing the trans-golgi. How detailed are our descriptions of the golgi structures going to be? Are we going to describe their structure physically only, or are we going into molecular detail as well?

--Mark Hill 22:41, 30 March 2009 (EST) The depth of your coverage is up to you and the group. Your final project should be a relatively even balance of all related content, showing that you understand what the main/key concepts are and our current understanding of research in this topic area.
