--Mark Hill 01:50, 8 September 2009 (EST) Still coming along, you have a lot of interesting pieces of information and some fair images. But how do the images relate to the text and where is the linkage? It is always easier to paste a whole lot of text information without interpreting what it actually means. Some of the information is good, tough some text also looks to be sourced without referencing. Overall the page lacks an integrated feel and structure.

--Mark Hill 08:45, 21 August 2009 (EST) This is a good start. It is important that the project page content/structure reflects what all members of the group have in mind. There should be a list of relevant references now on this discussion pages.

Background Reading

--Sadaf Masood 21:44, 8 September 2009 (EST) This link is for you Gary

--Gang Liu 15:18, 23 September 2009 (EST) hi could anyone tell me how to upload pictures on the main page. i'm trying to upload pictures from this link, into the last column of stages of frog embryo table. cheers!

Hey guys!!

I have only met one person in the group..and that was today in the lecture (3/08/09)

Still missing out on the third person here!

Lets decide on the animal guys before the lab!!!!


--Gang Liu 15:22, 16 August 2009 (EST)Hi all, I'm Gary and i've just enrolled into this subject mid-week last week. Will try to catch up with the group assignment and individual homework.

--Gang Liu 14:54, 19 August 2009 (EST)Hi group, since we are dividing the assessment. I would like to work on sections such as "The egg", "Fertilization", "Cleavage", "Gastrulation", and "Hand-drawing diagram". Thank you.

--Gang Liu 12:56, 20 August 2009 (EST)Hi all, Joe is working on the first six subheadings. And i'm happy to take whatever subheadings the rest of the group is not working on. Thank you.

--Gang Liu 14:07, 20 August 2009 (EST)Hi all, after this week's group dicussion in the lab, we split the tasks as the following:

  • Joe is responsible for subheadings such as egg, fertilization, cleavage, gastrulation, differentiation and growth;
  • Gary is responsible for subheadings such as anatomy of frog, timeline and stage(introduction), and abnormalities;
  • Sando is responsible for subheadings such as reproduction(male and female)+random subheading;
  • Sadaf is responsible for subheadings such as current research, genetics and glossary.

--Gang Liu 17:26, 23 August 2009 (EST)Hi all, should we mention Xenopus, part of frog family? --Gang Liu 09:29, 27 August 2009 (EST)Please ignore this line

--Gang Liu 18:00, 26 August 2009 (EST)Joe, thank you for updating our group page. Will upload my contents as soon as possible.

Hey guys, i need the list of words for the glossary or do u want me to pick them out myself? thanks!--Sadaf Masood 10:47, 27 August 2009 (EST)

--Gang Liu 11:24, 27 August 2009 (EST)Hi, sadaf, will upload my glossary by tomorrow. Thanks.

--Gang Liu 11:30, 27 August 2009 (EST)Hi group, i just realised there is no one doing history part. Is there anyone would like to take this part? Or else, i'll work on it. Let us know.

EGG: --Sando Rashed 18:17, 23 September 2009 (EST) as late as im posting this i havent had time this past week to upload my notes but im putting them up now

--Sando Rashed 18:18, 23 September 2009 (EST)Gastrulation of a frog embryology An invagination of cells that is found in the area of the embryo where it occupies the middle of the gray crescent, this is the beginning of gastrulation. This beginning is what creates the blastopore which in the future will become the anus, and a group of cells that would later on produce the notochord which will eventually become the backbone (also known as the speeman organizer). Stimulates the ectoderm to form neural tissue (rather than it forming skin), so it begins the staging of the neural folds, which eventually the tips of the folds will form the neural tube which will become the spinal chord and the brain. During gastrulation three layers start forming, these layers are known as the ectoderm, endoderm and the mesoderm. Layer Forms out of it

Ectoderm which may form the Brain, skin, spinal chord

Mesoderm which may form the Notochord, muscles, brain

Endoderm which may form the Inner lining of lings, bladder, thymus forms here.

--Sando Rashed 22:24, 23 September 2009 (EST)Cleavage = the repeated division of a fertilised ovum When the zygote nucleus forms the first cleavage forms, this nucleus undergoes a number of mitosis processes, a wrinkle forms down longitudinally passing the poles of the eggs where the sperm enters. This is how the egg is split up into two halves and this process is what forms the 2-cell stage. The process of the second cleavage is the process that allows the 4-cell stage to occur, the wrinkle runs through the poles at right angles instead of running through it longitudinally. The 8 stage cell is formed during the third cleavage it cuts across horizontally but it cuts through closer to the animal poles rather than the vegetal poles. As cleavages continually occur a 16 and 32 cell embryo are formed, and as these cleavages continuously occur the cells closer to the animal poles divide more rapidly and in more numbers compared to the vegetal pole. Eventually with all these cells continuously forming the blastula forms and a blastoseal which is a fluid filled cavity forms within it (no growth of the embryo has formed). --Sando Rashed 23:06, 23 September 2009 (EST)Anatomy of a Frog

The anatomy of a frog has many specialized features that are unique to the frog to help them live in their environment, they have long sticky tongues that help with them to grab food, they have specialized bones in the legs to help them jump. When under water frogs are able to breathe through their skin, the oxygen is able to diffuse straight into the blood through the pores on the skin; they also have lungs that allow them to breathe on land. In frogs they have 3 valves instead of the 4 valves in humans, they have one ventricle and two atria’s, the spiral valve does not allow blood with oxygen to mix with blood that has no oxygen. Frogs are able to listen to sounds that have a low pitch through their skin as well as hearing sounds with a high pitch through their ears.
