Gene transcriptions/Courses

From Wikiversity
Jump to navigation Jump to search

These courses in gene transcription are dynamic only.

The courses are built upon the ongoing research performed by geneticists around the world and here at Wikiversity.

In line with the Wikiversity ideal of learning by doing are a number of quizzes which you can combine with lectures and laboratories to cater to your personal education, teaching and research needs.

In some instances your interactions and responses may be used for research purposes, such as improving the quizzes. Your username and/or other identifiers are not included. If the resource itself is also being used for research purposes you will see the icon: Bob, the guinea pig.jpg. If your actions have been used for research purposes, this little icon may appear on your user talk page.

The general subject area is genetics. This includes knowledge of physics, chemistry, geography, history, and other subjects.

Prerequisites[edit]

Although an introduction to biochemistry would be a good idea, it is not required. Most of the information is descriptive.

If the freedom to write and execute computer programs online here at Wikiversity becomes available, you may be able to submit small programs to scan sections of DNA.

Completion levels[edit]

These courses are dynamic only, which means lectures and other resources may change without notice. If you work through all the quizzes and read or reinforce the lecture information in your mind, you may want to stop back after a year and perhaps learn more.

Lectures and quizzes may have a level of completion icon following them based on ≥ 100 kb equals 100 %, or 100 questions is 100 %, midterms and finals are based on 300 questions equals 100 %:

  1. A resource that is a stub means that pretty well nothing has been done yet. 0-5%. Smiley green alien cry.svg
  2. A resource just getting off the ground will show the following icon. Please feel welcome to help! 6-15%. Tulliana launch.png
  3. Been started, but most of the work is still to be done - 16-30%. SYawning.svg
  4. About halfway there. You may help to clarify and expand it - 31-45%. Face-blush.svg
  5. Almost complete, but you can help make it more thorough - 46-60%. Nuvola apps kcontrol.gif
  6. Ready for testing by learners and teachers. Please begin! 61-75%. Sweden road sign A10.svg
  7. This resource is considered to be ready for use - 76-90%. Emblem-extra-cool.svgR
  8. This resource has reached a high level of completion - 91-100%. Emblem-extra-cool.svgC

A completion icon may not be present for all resources.

Lectures[edit]

Each lecture has or will have an associated quiz. Lectures are arranged in alphabetical order but can be enjoyed in any order.

Some of the lectures appear as red links until the older version is moved to the new title. Check the gene project template for the older title.

Red link lectures are just waiting for you to create. Be bold and proactive.

Lecture titles that are not yet plural need to be moved to a new title that is plural.

Each lecture appears more enticing with an image at the top.

Quizzes[edit]

The quizzes may be rated by number of questions, with 100 questions being a high level of completion, even though some are at lower numbers of questions.

Laboratories[edit]

Each laboratory contains hypotheses that will be tested. You are free to compose your own hypotheses and test them versus the data sets. If you would like peer review of your efforts that consists of positive and constructive criticism put your efforts as a subpage of your user name, e.g. user:your username/your laboratory title, and ask for review on this page's Discuss page.

Hourlies[edit]

If you're really feeling like you know this stuff, try one of our hourlies, so called because they take about an hour to work through.

Hypotheses[edit]

  1. Several courses could be offered dealing with aspects of genetics or gene transcriptions.
