Community Portal is a place where you can post questions, suggestions, to do lists, and whatever else you think is needed to enhance WikiGenetics. Everyone is encouraged to participate in the community portal.
Please review the content and structure of WikiGenetics, especially newly created pages or modified pages. Recent changes can be viewed to the left of the page under Recent changes.
Please post suggestions, work that needs to be done, etc., to the community portal here so that we can share information about what we need to do. We expect you to provide directions to the WikiGenetics community.
To Editors and other volunteers
Advisers will post suggestions here, but everyone is welcome to post suggestions and add to the to do list, as well.
The current to do lists:
Please feel free to ask any questions here.
what is new about fragile x?
-I just put a page about a Fragile X association up on the main page. Their site should help you see what's going on. Hehe. Perhaps you can come back here and add more about Fragile X to this Wiki!
Please feel free to talk about any needs here.
-Add a figure/text showing the normal process of meiosis to the "chromosome abnormality" section. I think it would help readers understand nondisjunction.
-Setup a genetics related news system that people can use to keep up to date with all the modern breakthroughs and discoveries in genetics. Might as well add features that wikipedia doesn't have so people have a reason to use this site rather than just using wikipedia.
-Add a forum to the site so users can discuss the content of the site as well as other things.
-Add a glossary
To Do List
-Users who are planning to contribute to WikiGenetics might want to consider placing information on their user pages. The easiest way to do this is to just click on your username anywhere on the site after logging in, and edit the page like any other entry.
-Advocacy groups and condition specific groups, it would be great to get some information into our condition specific entries! We can do this using info from Disease InfoSearch, but we've also had parents adding their own contributions.
Subtopics that need to be developed
- variable gene expression
- variable penetrance
- pedigree patterns
- description of expertise and training of clinical geneticists & genetic counselors
- normal variation (short stature, fused toes, eye color [paternity])
- complex conditions - diabetes, Alzheimer's, autism, allergies, cancer,
