Post Peer Assessment Discussion

Hey guys in response to the peers i moved around my pictures, gave them text under them, and added a lot of new information and some photos to the structure section. the only issue we have left is to clean up our reference list since it mostly looks like a bunch of pubmed IDs. i guess we will ask mark what to do with this.--Michael Orenstein 21:48, 25 May 2011 (EST)

Week 7

  • This is the week before the mid-session break.
  • In the lab this week we will have an opportunity to discuss any issues which are slowing progress on your project.
  • The Thursday of the week beginning 02 May will be when all projects will be open to Peer Assessment.
  • What you have on your page by Thursday of that week will be the content that others in the class will comment upon.

Week 6

  1. I see many groups now have subsection titles for their projects.
  2. Here are some searches: Pubmed search all databases junction | PLoS junction | JCB junction You can now simply put your own search term into each top window.
  3. Now's the time to get your images, movies, media etc uploaded. Biomed central | JCB | JCB Archive | PLoS. Once uploaded you can make a gallery on either your project or discussion page using <gallery>File:name here</gallery> tags with your image files listed between the tags. When you upload project images, add this text as it appears replacing # with your own Group number to the summary information [[Category:2011Project#]].
  4. Shown below are the criteria that will be used to assess your final project.

Group Assessment Criteria

  • The key points relating to the topic that your group was allocated are clearly described.
  • The choice of content, headings and sub-headings, diagrams, tables, graphs show a good understanding of the topic area.
  • Content is correctly cited and referenced.
  • The wiki has an element of teaching at a peer level using the student’s own innovative diagrams, tables or figures and/or using interesting examples or explanations.
  • Evidence of significant research relating to basic and applied sciences that goes beyond the formal teaching activities.
  • Relates the topics and content of the Wiki entry to learning aims of cell biology.
  • Clearly reflects on editing/feedback from group peers and articulates how the Wiki could be improved (or not) based on peer comments/feedback. Demonstrates an ability to review own work when criticised in an open edited wiki format. Reflects on what was learned from the process of editing a peer’s wiki.
  • Evaluates own performance and that of group peers to give a rounded summary of this wiki process in terms of group effort and achievement.
  • The content of the wiki should demonstrate to the reader that your group has researched adequately on this topic and covered the key areas necessary to inform your peers in their learning.
  • Develops and edits the wiki entries in accordance with this sites wiki guidelines.

By Week 5

Each Group member has added to the discussion page:

  1. A Review Article
  2. A Historic Research Article
  3. A Current Research Article

No two students should add the same paper and there should be a link to the original article.

--Robert Dikeman 23:27, 30 March 2011 (EST) Hey guys, here are some possible topics and articles that may be useful for the project

  • Structure of TJs

A lipid-protein hybrid model for tight junction

Molecular Basis of the Core Structure of Tight Junctions


  • TJs role in disease

Tight junctions: a barrier to the initiation and progression of breast cancer?

  • Formation of TJs

EFA6 Facilitates the Assembly of the Tight Junction by Coordinating an Arf6-dependent and -independent Pathway*

--Mark Hill 17:11, 30 March 2011 (EST) OK Group 3, Just one student trying to organise a discussion group to date and no other content has been added to either your discussion or project page. You were meant to have already begun looking into both the topic and references, pasting links on your discussion page. I will see you in the lab tomorrow to discuss whether you are having problems or are simply not doing the work. This search should get you started. Search Pubmed: Tight Junction

Hey guys..... wanted to try this "discussion" thing...but also wondering if you'll be free to stay back for a little while after the lab on Thursday? --Emma Collyer 13:48, 28 March 2011 (EST)

I actually have a class right after lab. What did you want to talk about?--Robert Dikeman 20:51, 29 March 2011 (EST)

Sorry guys, ive been busy with assignments this week.Anyways,here are some links i found;

Tight junctions and cell polarity

Molecular architecture of tight junctions

Regulation of the movement of solutes across tight junctions

Tight junction pore and leak pathways

I find sirius is pretty handy and resourceful,you guys might wanna check it out.Also,we should break down the task into 4 parts, so each of us is on a part and from that point on , we will mainly do the part we get throughout the session.--Seow Liew 01:54, 31 March 2011 (EST)

Now we're looking better! Awesome articles. Thinking it's important that we have a thorough read through the following to acquire a decent overall understanding & make sure everything we write about is relevant.


Tight Junctions-Molecular Cell biology 4th ed

Oh and keep a sharp eye out for pictures you like. We want to give ourselves as much time as possible to contact the owners if we need permission to use it..

--Emma Collyer 09:10, 31 March 2011 (EST)

31 March 2011

Review articles-

Physiology and Function of the Tight Junction

Molecular Basis of the Core Structure of Tight Junctions

Molecular complexity of vertebrate tight junctions

Research articles-

2011- Imaging analysis of the gliadin direct effect on tight junctions in an in vitro three-dimensional Lovo cell line culture system

1969- Freeze-etch appearance of the tight junctions in the epithelium of small and large intestine of mice

I'll write summaries for each later today! --Emma Collyer 10:51, 31 March 2011 (EST)

Research articles

Tight Junction Zonula Occludens-3 regulates Cyclin D1 dependent cell proliferation.

This is just some information on TJ's and their role in the regulation of cell proliferation. Seems like it could be used as a means for regulating cell proliferation in carcinogenesis
