Week 6 Journal Feedback

  • Thank you for completing your assignment on time.
  • Your answers to the questions were well-documented.
  • For your answers to the Cn3D part of the assignment, I think you were looking at the wrong structure. Your link is to the right page in the NCBI Structure Database, but your screenshots say that the structure has the ID of 1rq4 instead of 1ebm.
    • The structure of 1ebm would be considered a tertiary structure if we just consider the protein part. A tertiary structure is the overall 3D fold of a single polypeptide chain. Having prosthetic groups (like heme) does not make it a quaternary structure. A quaternary structure is when there are two or more polypeptide chains. You might consider that 1ebm is making a quaternary structure with the DNA double helix it is bound to, but not because of the heme groups.
    • The sequences shown in the lower window of your screen shot are actual individual polypeptide chains, so having multiple chains like that would make it a quaternary structure.
    • A tertiary structure like 1ebm could have multiple domains within it. A domain is a region of a struture that folds independently and could be cleaved from the rest of the structure in just one or two places and still fold. 1ebm actually has 3 domains.
  • Let me know if you need this further clarified.

Week 5 Journal Feedback

  • Thank you for completing your assignment on time.
  • Your journal narrative is exemplary. Here are a couple minor suggestions:
  • Please use leading zeros for your numbers. For example use
0.211

instead of

.212
  • Your link to your article was to PubMedCentral, which is a secondary repository for research articles. You should seek out the availability of articles from the actual journal web site to get the real published version.
  • Keep up the good work!

Week 4 Journal Feedback

  • Thank you for completing your assignment on time and answering all of the questions.
  • Please link back to the specific assignment page for that week, not just the course home page. You could go ahead and add all the specific assignment pages to your template as well to take care of this.

Journal Club 1 Outline and Presentation Feedback

  • Thank you for submitting your assignment on time.
  • Your definitions were complete, but need to be cited. To cite them, you need to provide the link to the wb page from which you got the definition and provide the date you accessed that page.
  • Your outline was detailed and complete, answering all of the questions.
  • You were well-prepared to discuss your assigned figure/table in class.

Week 3 Journal Feedback

  • Thank you for completing your assignment on time.
  • Your journal page is well-annotated. Some slight improvements that you could make:
    • Actually specify the equation for theta in the text instead of referring to the handout.
    • Make additional hyperlinks to your sources throughout your text instead of just at the beginning.
  • I made an adjustment to your week 3 grade on MyLMUConnect; keep up the good work!
  • I will be posting feedback on your outline and presentation separately.

Week 2 Journal Feedback

  • Thank you for completing your assignment on time.
  • A suggestion: you could add the link to the assignment page to your template.
  • You had good detailed results. For the future, you do not need to have a separate methods section, instead you could organize your narrative into methods-results, methods-results, methods-results...
  • Your conclsion did answer all of the questions in detail, but it would have been easier to read if it had been bulleted out some more (again, a suggestion for the future.).
  • It was good to include a screenshot. There are more options for showing images on pages than enclosing it in the border; this one would have been easier to see as a larger image.

Week 1 Redux

  • Thank you for completing the revisions to your user page on time. Please do let me know if you have any worries or concerns about the course or if there is anything else you want me to know, even if the answer to those questions is "no".

Week 1 Journal Feedback

  • Thank you for completing this assignment on time. There are a few things that you still need to attend to:
    • You created a template, but did not actually use it on your page. To use it you need to put {{Template:Chris H. Rhodes}} somewhere on your user page and whereever you put it, the stuff in your template will automatically be put there.
    • Your external link to GenBank only needs to have one set of square brackets, not two. That's why the brackets are showing up on the page. Links to internal wiki pages use two brackets and external links just use one. Please fix this.
    • Please be in the habit of writing something in the summary field before you save your page, each time you make a save. You will then be able to see the summary of your changes when you click on the history tab.
    • Please let me know if you have any worries or concerns about the course or if there is anything else you want me to know, even if the answer to those questions is "no".
  • You can also feel free to delete the text automatically generated by OpenWetware that is at the bottom of this page.
