Summary of Articles[edit]

Please ask all the contributors of wikipedia to include summaries of all articles. Thank you.

Molecular and Cellular Biology WikiProject Votes[edit]

Nuvola apps kcmpartitions.png The Molecular and Cellular Biology WikiProject has recently opened two surveys that will help to decide the direction of the project. First, nominations are currently being accepted for the position of coordinator of the project. Second, votes and additional suggestions for the official title of that position are also being taken. As a member of the project, we hope that you'll drop by and voice your opinion. – ClockworkSoul 03:48, 18 September 2006 (UTC)

October MCB Article Improvement Drive‎[edit]

This month's MCB Article Improvement Drive article is adenosine triphosphate.

This article has been rated as start class on the assessment scale.

Vote here for next month's article.

One more vote for the coordinator of the Molecular and Cellular Biology Wikiproject[edit]

Since two of the three editors nominated for Coordinator of the MCB Wikiproject declined their nominations, one more vote has been posted: should the remaining nominee, ClockworkSoul, be named as the coordinator, or should nominations be reopened? Every opinion counts, so please vote! – ClockworkSoul 17:45, 17 October 2006 (UTC)

Molecular and Cellular Biology Wikiproject Newsletter[edit]

The project main page has gotten a facelift!
When people visit the project, the very first thing that they see tends to be the project's main page, and with this in mind, the main page has been completely overhauled. To enhance readability the various "goals" sections have been merged, and a detailed "how you can help" section has been added. To increase accessibility for more established members, the links to any resources that were in the main body text have been moved onto the navigation bar on the right. Finally, the whole page has been nicely laid out and given a nice attractive look.
New project feature: peer review
I'm proud to announce the addition of out newest feature: peer review! The MCB peer review feature aims serve as a stepping stone to improve articles to featured article status by allowing editors to request the opinions of other members about articles that they might not otherwise see or contribute to.
Project progress
The article worklist
We’ve had quite a bit of progress on the worklist article in the past month. Not only has the list itself nearly doubled in size from 143 to 365 entries, but an amazing three articles have been advanced to FA status, thanks in great part to the efforts of our very own TimVickers! Remember, the state of the worklist is the closest thing we have to quantifying the progress of the project, so if you get the chance, please take a look at the list, pick a favorite article, and improve it!
Collaboration of the Month
Last month's Collaboration of the Month, cell nucleus, was a terrific success! In one month, the article went from a dismal stub to an A-class article. Many thanks to all of the collaborators who contributed, especially ShaiM, who took on the greatest part of the burden. This month's Collaboration of the Month, adenosine triphosphate, isn't getting nearly the attention of its predecessor, so if you can, please lend a hand!
The project has a new coordinator, ClockworkSoul! The role - my role - of coordinator will be to harmonize the project's common efforts, in part by organizing the various tasks required to make the project run as smoothly and completely as possible. Many thanks to those who supported me and those participated in the selection process.

Hi Aaron,

The appropriate title of the wavefunction article is currently debated on its talk page. All participating in the discussion seem to agree that the correct title should be "wave function", but there seems to be some uncertainty as to whether this is indeed the case. What is your opinion on the matter? MacGuy(contact me) 13:20, 14 February 2007 (UTC)

Biological Value[edit]

I noticed you appear to be involved in biology articles or WikiProjects relating to biology and human processes. This article, on a method for evaluating biological utilizations rates of proteins in humans and animals, was started in August and is in need of the attention of an expert. We are having trouble locating one and the article desperately needs it. This method is used constantly in bodybuilding magazines and products and is the subject of much misinformation and half-truths. On the other hand it does appear to have some value. Please help if possible. In case you're wondering why I picked you I just looked through some Science WikiProjects and biology articles and your name appeared a lot in one or both categories. Incidentally if you decide not to do this for whatever reason there's no need to reply. I'll just take it you're busy or uninterested and leave it at that. Thanks.

Dear AaronM, Thank you for your help and improving the article 'Chemotaxis'. I have only one question : why have you changed in the part of cilia "9x2+2" to "9+2". As far as I know and teach my students and read/write papers and books the very common terminology is the 9x2 as this express the doublet of microtubules. What was the reason you changed it? Thank you for your help again! Best ragards from, Kohlasz (talk) 06:14, 14 August 2008 (UTC)

Dear AaronM, Thanks for the rapid response. First of all I am going to underline that I feel the case not very significant - I was asking you only because of the 'Chemotaxis' related pages are moderated by me and I have a close connection in my 3 decade research to a Ciliate, Tetrahymena. You are right, the 9+2 term is also used to describe the microtubular structure of the cilia - in these cases somewhere it is expressed that there are doublets - as well as the (9x2)+2. I feel the latter one 'didactic' especially in the Wiki, where not only specialists will read the text. The other reason why I was asking you about the change is that the related article of the Wiki 'Axoneme' which uses also the (9x2)+2 symbol two or three times in the text (that article is not from me.) So I feel the problem is open - it is really a minor change and up to you what to do whit that. Best regards from, Kohlasz (talk) 19:39, 14 August 2008 (UTC)

Input on Microtubule's Penrose consciousness section[edit]

Hey. I saw you've edited Microtubule in the past, and I'd like your input on Talk:Microtubule#Removing Penrose/Moving (again). IP is denying consensus on the Talk page, and continuously reverting other's efforts to remove the section about Penrose's Orch-OR theory of consciousness. Would you mind opining? —wing gundam 19:38, 5 August 2013 (UTC)

Yale Scan and Deliver Service[edit]

Dear AaronM, I'm writing to you because you are affiliated to Yale University and you are an active contributor to Wikipedia - do you use scan and deliver service in Yale Library? I need two pages from rather obscure journal held in Yale for an article in Polish wikipedia, but this service is unavailable for researchers with no Yale affiliation. I asked for help in the WikiProject Resource Exchange once, but with no reply. I would be more than grateful for your help. Best wishes, Filip em (talk) 13:19, 16 May 2014 (UTC)

Unfortunately, it has been a long time since I have taken the time to update my Wikipedia user page! I am no longer at Yale University, so I do not think I would be able to be of help, if what you need is someone with a Yale affiliation. --AaronM (talk) 12:54, 17 May 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for your reply! Best, Filip em (talk) 16:15, 20 May 2014 (UTC)
