Hi girls (: I actually managed to find some genetics-related articles on neural tube defects. It has something to do with folate and folate-related genes from what I have read so far. So how about it? Shall our website be based on neural tube defects? (:

Hey girls,

So I've done a bit of research on a few of them. One of the things we need to keep in mind is that it has to relate to the learning outcomes, which I think is the embryological process, and how the genetic disorder relates to it or how its affected by it? (I tried looking it up but couldnt find it).

Here's a list of the topics I've been looking into:

Turner Syndrome: commonly known to have one missing sex chromosome, (or both) - LOTS of info on this. (only thing is, because its such a broad topic, we might have articles that contradict each other, or might not have that many embryology related new articles...?)

Klinefelter's Syndrome: the gigantic disease with the extra chromosome (XXY). there's a decent amount of info on this, but not as much as Turner.

Neural Tube defects: problems happening in the first month of baby formation because of the folate deficiency in the mother. But i'm not too sure where the genetics come into this..

Which topics have you guys been looking at? Let us know! cos we need to have some articles in 2-3days time! :)

Ye it's better to research an area instead of just one disease then, because that will give us more to talk about... especially the genetic components which Mark commented on. So I was thinking Neural Tube Defects instead. That will give us Anencephaly, Encephaloceles, Hydranencephaly, Iniencephaly and Spina bifida. ?--Maeda Sadeghpour 01:09, 8 August 2011 (EST)

You need to think about what the genetic component will be for the disease you select. --Mark Hill 23:51, 7 August 2011 (EST)

I don't think that having 4 categories will be a problem. I actually think that it will be good to have extra stuff to talk about. Have a look at the other pages from previous years, they are very elaborated so I think it's actually a good thing to have alot of things to talk about. But anyway lets decide on something so that we can post up our articles

--Elizabeth Blanchard 22:00, 7 August 2011 (EST)

Hey! I get what you mean, Maeda. Doing 4 categories can be quite heavy. Hmm, but I was thinking, since this is going to be a wikipage and the elaboration for the 'original' wikipage for spina bifida is not very deep for the 4 categories, maybe we could leverage on this weakness and make ours more detailed? :) But if you guys think it is too much, I don't mind doing the other suggestions too! Anyway, this is just a preliminary decision. It depends on the topics that other groups have chosen too. Would it be possible for us to finalise the topic by tomorrow?

--Nur Sharalyn Abdullah 17:18, 7 August 2011 (EST)

Hello people. I was basically trying to see which diseases had the most current information available online, and cystic fibrosis seems to be very well known. Spina Bifida is very interesting as well, my only concern with it is the 4 categories it's divided into, which I thought might make it a bit more work. What do you guys think? :)

--Maeda Sadeghpour 00:25, 6 August 2011 (EST)

Hey, girls! I'm thinking of spina bifida and hydrocephalus. Cheers!

--Nur Sharalyn Abdullah 20:26, 5 August 2011 (EST)

hey guys, had a quick look and Spina bifida and Turner's Syndrome both seem to have a decent amount of information on them
