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.

--Mark Hill 17:18, 30 March 2011 (EST) OK Group 5, You and Group 6 are the only groups that have begun your project work, well done! Though I can only see contributions from Z3218657 and Z3292208.This search should get you started with the references Search Pubmed: Adherens Junction

Our Image Gallery


Hey guys so i think Mark put on our page a list of subheadings that he wants us to use... So ill put it up and again we can put our name next to the ones we want to do. There are 8 so 2 each. I think ill also keep with the table i started on the page and make that another heading maybe.

1. IntroductionEsther

2. History alex

3. Structure Tegan

4. Function alex

5. Hemidesmosomes Tegan

6. Importance and regulation Esther

7. AbnormalitiesSal

8. Research methods Sal

Ok guys so 2 of you emailed me back about changing the topic, so if we choose the last topic offered Adherens Junctions I thought this might be good lay out:

  1. Introduction What are Adherens junctions in cells? What types of proteins constitute these? Where in the cell do they occur? What is the function of these junctions (brief)? Tegan
  2. History Who discovered them? How has our knowledge of them increased over time? SAL
  3. Function/importance of Adherens Junctions What are the main functions of these junctions, explained in detail one by one. Can the body live or function properly without these? Z3254433
  4. Formation of Adherens Junctions How do these junctions form, what are the steps of development. e.g first step: the organization of actin filaments ..etc. Esther
  5. Other types of cell junctionsComparison of these to other cell junctions, maybe in a table with some pictures of each. Tegan
  6. Diseases That affect the Adherens Junctions SAL
  7. Current associated research Is there any research being conducted presently about these junctions? SAL
  8. Conclusion Final Overview of the topic.
  9. External links
  10. Glossary
  11. References

Articles to Read/look at

Just wanted to put the links somewhere

hey i think the pic would already have a ref in its description section. BTW does anybody know why my pic isnt working???? its in our gallery. --z3254433 19:14, 6 May 2011 (EST)

--Kyung Ma 14:18, 6 May 2011 (EST) I drew another version of File:Adherens Junction Diagram.jpg through the paint tool... may be you want to use this instead of hand drawn one? And can we put that up in the introduction?

--Kyung Ma 13:19, 6 May 2011 (EST) Can I upload the picture from the lecture note? and if so, do we have to reference it fully?

--Kyung Ma 09:39, 5 May 2011 (EST) So the thing is I don't know if my importance and regulation section is enough... I can go in to more detail but i thought that I will take too much space since i have to go on and on... tell me what I should write more on or less on

--Kyung Ma 09:27, 5 May 2011 (EST)

yeah apparently the peer assessment by other groups are on next week so what Mark said was to read each others section that we've done, and tell each other if we have to go in to more detail or summarise it and stuff....

hey guys it says on the bottom of our page everyone has a week extension for the peer assessment?! true??

tegan--z3292208 22:56, 4 May 2011 (EST)

hey don't panic i have the section on history, i'll have it put up by tonight after i proof read it, i'm just working on another report atm! i am worried that we don't have enough pics, but i can't seem to find any others that haven't been used already! also the pic in the structure sec is too big i think so i might resize it later and see if it looks better?!

--z3254433 15:59, 4 May 2011 (EST)

Hey, someone in another group told me they had that same problem that they lost their work and i think to get it back you have to go through the history of the page maybe? Goodluck with it! Current research sounds good, i think thats what mark wants.

Also whats happening with History and Importance and Regulation anyone?? Also I think function sounds great but maybe needs more detail? Im gonna add a bit more detail to my structure section today.

Tegan --z3292208 09:15, 4 May 2011 (EST)

Ok so Research Methods I'm taking as Just Current research unless anyone thinks of something else to include there because all i got is looking under microscopes.. well more detail than that but not really about Adherens Junctions specifically. Also I'm going to add a blurb about each of the articles tomorrow night!

--Sally Clarke 23:20, 3 May 2011 (EST)

Ok so problem - i was editing my section and someone must have been editing the page at the same time and now its all stuffed up... kind of lost some of my text and i don't know where to find it! Anyone know whats happening? --Sally Clarke 22:19, 2 May 2011 (EST)

Try looking on Flicker like i said before to Tegan, Its has a lot of free to reuse images.

--Sally Clarke 13:11, 2 May 2011 (EST)

--Kyung Ma 13:09, 2 May 2011 (EST)

Heyy guys I just uploaded introduction... and I'm planning to upload the importance and regulation tonight or tomorrow morning! I'm so sorry for late uploading! I was staying at my parent's house during the break and we don't have internet there so... haha But the thing is I couldn't find any image that is freely distributed...

Sweet ill check it out tonight thanks. --z3292208 09:27, 2 May 2011 (EST)

Strangely enough, for pictures i have found that flicker is really good as a lot of the images are free to reuse and to edit! That's where i found the last two so try your luck there!

--Sally Clarke 09:14, 2 May 2011 (EST)

Yep you said you were on track so all good! The diseases section looks good! Hopefully our page will be looking awesome by thurs. I still need to add to my sections. And having trouble getting a couple of pics too....

Tegan. --z3292208 08:37, 2 May 2011 (EST)

No problems just wanted to let you know that i do have stuff I'm just trying to make it all Copyright-able... If that makes sense. Youve done a great job.

--Sally Clarke 17:39, 1 May 2011 (EST)

Ok thats cool Sally, thanks for getting back to me.

Tegan --z3292208 13:14, 1 May 2011 (EST)

Hey Tegan, I'm having problems with copyright and such. All the info that i have found is copy righted so I'm adding it to links and searching for fingers crossed, more material --Sally Clarke 12:18, 1 May 2011 (EST)

Hey, hows everyone going with their sections? Page is looking a little empty compared to other groups. Let me know how you're all going!


--z3292208 12:06, 1 May 2011 (EST)

Hey guys - we are ONLY focusing on the 8 dot points mark has outlined for us bellow. Formatting of page, conclusion, Glossary, finalised references, editing and proofing are all to be done when we have finished those 8 dot points. See you all tomorrow? --Sally Clarke 20:32, 20 April 2011 (EST)

Hey 3291200 Kyung Ma, introduction is just opening the page, saying briefly what the junction is and what the page will be about etc. I dont think its fair if you do introduction and conclusion, if you dont want to do Importance and Regulation maybe change that and do Formation of Adherens Junctions instead? I dont think we need to worry about a conclusion yet, we can do that at the very very end, lets worry about the rest of the page for now. --z3292208 19:24, 20 April 2011 (EST)

--Kyung Ma 10:36, 20 April 2011 (EST)

1. A Review Article Dynein binds to b-catenin and may tether microtubules at adherens junctions Molecular architecture of adherens junctions

2. A Historic Research Article Spatial and temporal distribution of the adherens-junction-associated adhesion molecule A-CAM during avian embryogenesis

3. A Current Research Article

--Kyung Ma 10:20, 20 April 2011 (EST) I'm not confident with the research methods so I choose conclusion but does that mean when we are finished with all the other stuff i briefly summarise the things that everyone wrote?

--Kyung Ma 14:29, 12 April 2011 (EST)

Hey guys I choose introduction and importancce and regulation... introduction is meant by the general information about adherense junction right?

I think the most useful ones are the historical article above (2 or 3 from the bottom) in the not sure to freely reuse section but i think its not copyrighted... i couldn't find the copyright info anywhere so maybe you will have better luck on it. It gives a good overview at where they were at in 2002.

--Sally Clarke 09:26, 19 April 2011 (EST)

sure why not, thanks sally

--z3254433 07:55, 19 April 2011 (EST)

z3254433 if you are having problems with research methods You can do history instead and I can do research methods. A lot of the articles I have found above will be useful.

--Sally Clarke 20:56, 18 April 2011 (EST)

Hey these are the headings mark wants us to do so im not sure what he wants in a couple of them, i think im gonna ask him about my number 5, but for research methods it might be what research techniques scientists used to find out about the junction? It could also include any research that is currently being done about the junctions?

--z3292208 18:10, 13 April 2011 (EST)

  • sorry guys i'm not sure that i fully understand the heading research methods,is anyone able to give me a guide at what i need to write in this section?

--z3254433 10:35, 13 April 2011 (EST)

Z3254433 and Esther, you need to do 2 topics (as Tegan and i are doing 2!) there is conclusion and further research - Chuck your names next to them as you want and then lets get started! --Sally Clarke 09:15, 7 April 2011 (EST)

Hey guys so i was looking at the outline and we seem to have 2 headings unclaimed and one person missing?

This would be good for the development of the junction Model of the Evolution of Cell Adhesion Junctions


--z3292208 11:23, 6 April 2011 (EST)

The articles we need for this week:

1. review article Plasma membrane components of adherens junctions (Review)

2. historical article http://jcb.rupress.org/content/135/2/497.abstract Polymorphonuclear Leukocyte Adhesion Triggers the Disorganization of Endothelial Cell-to-Cell Adherens Junctions]

3. current article aPKC Controls Microtubule Organization to Balance Adherens Junction Symmetry and Planar Polarity during Development

--z3254433 11:19, 6 April 2011 (EST)


1. A review article VE-cadherin: at the front, center, and sides of endothelial cell organization and function

2. A historic research article Discovering the Molecular Components of Intercellular Junctions—A Historical View

3. A current research article A Key Role for E-cadherin in Intestinal Homeostasis and Paneth Cell Maturation

--z3292208 10:50, 5 April 2011 (EST)

Hi Guys, So i added a few (ok sorry but i just got on a role and was sitting around at work waiting) articles and I think they are mostly really good. They don't really go into specific antibodies etc but are more overviews of the Whole Adherens junctions themselves. Take a look if you like, i think we are still missing one person in our group. Hope you have a good one

--Sally Clarke 14:25, 1 April 2011 (EST)

Also just a thought maybe we should look into diseases where the Adherens junctions have been affected ie. Pathogenic Hantaviruses. This is a great paper on it and really interesting. Maybe we can make another small group for this info.

Pathogenic Hantaviruses Andes Virus and Hantaan Virus Induce Adherens Junction Disassembly by Directing Vascular Endothelial Cadherin Internalization in Human Endothelial Cells{triangledown}

I thought i would put my name against the ones i was going to do, hope this is ok with all. We now have 6 topics (the last three i think we should all just do together as we will know when we have references, new key words etc.) coolies? --Sally Clarke 10:30, 31 March 2011 (EST)

Hi guys, ill do number three by the way are there any other topics that you would like me to do?

--z3254433 21:42, 30 March 2011 (EST)

Ah i see good idea! I moved it around so it makes more sense now! --Sally Clarke 09:28, 30 March 2011 (EST)

Hey lots of articles! cool ill check them out today. also add stuff to the top of the discussion page so when we look at it we dont have to scroll all the way down to the bottom :)


--z3292208 09:27, 30 March 2011 (EST)

Hey Tegan, This looks great. I found some good articles about it as well.

This one is great Endothelial adherens junctions and the actin cytoskeleton: an 'infinity net'? - Free to re-use information and images

http://www.biomedcentral.com/1741-7007/8/11 - Free to re-use information and images

Adherens Junctions dynamic

The role of adherens junctions and VE-cadherin in the control of vascular permeability. I can see full article but can't find copyright info.

I would like to do number 6 - current research adn maybe 2. There are only 5 topics and there are 4 of us so I'm going to keep looking around and see if we can add any more.

--Sally Clarke 09:21, 30 March 2011 (EST)

So we should split up the sections if you guys think this layout is ok, I wouldnt mind doing 1 and 4. Tegan.

--z3292208 18:39, 29 March 2011 (EST)

Hey guys as Mark said this is a new topic so we might have trouble finding information on it, I reckon we should look at doing something else then because we'll need lots of references to make the page.

The last topic there is Adherens Junctions.

What do you guys think?
