Also, I wondered if you are created Salinosporamide A as part of a class project or something like that. I saw a couple of other recent antibiotic and pharmaceutical articles that looked similar and wondered if there might be some type of group effort going on. Just curious. --Ed (Edgar181) 20:35, 15 June 2007 (UTC)


Yes, a number of students in the UCSD chem department's PhD program are working on natural products as part of a class. Here is a list of all the natural products that are supposed to be worked on. The emphasis of the class is the biosynthesis, so that part of each page was the focus.

  1. Tyrocidine
  2. Bleomycin
  3. Cyclosporin
  4. Doxorubicin
  5. Lovastatin
  6. Lincomycin
  7. Mitomycin C
  8. Ansamycin
  9. Mupirocin
 10. Novobiocin
 11. Thienamycin
 12. Epothilone B
 13. Salinosporamide A
 14. Artemisinin
 15. Vancomycin
 16. Pladienolide

Is this the correct way to respond to messages? Does it notify the asker? Nubinski 17:13, 19 June 2007 (UTC)MXM

Responding this way is just fine (but it doesn't notify the asker). Thanks for your contributions. If you or any of your fellow students are interested, there is a coordinated effort to improve chemistry related articles at Wikipedia:WikiProject Chemistry and Wikipedia:WikiProject Chemicals. If any of you need assistance (Wikipedia has some peculiarities that can be frustrating for new users), please just ask us - we're a friendly bunch.
Also, if you don't mind me asking, who is the professor teaching the course and does he/she have a Wikipedia account? --Ed (Edgar181) 21:09, 19 June 2007 (UTC)
This sounds like an interesting project! I'd also be interested in hearing from the professor about whether we (the larger wikipedia community) should lay back and let the students work mostly on their own vs others actively working on the pages' content. DMacks 22:15, 19 June 2007 (UTC)

OK, so how do I respond in a way that notifies the original poster? The Prof in charge of the class is Dr. Michael Burkart. mburkart@ucsd.edu. Not sure if he has a wiki account or not. As far as editing the pages the students have posted, I would say yes. Leaving them substandard doesn't seem appropriate. I am guessing that they will be graded by the end of the week. I know that I would appreciate knowing why my images are messed up. I would like them to go between text to illustrate the story I am trying to tell about the biosynthesis, but for some reason they are going all crazy on me... Also, a more general question. I have done a lot of traveling and have a lot of pictures from places around the world. How is the vibe of adding them to pages about places?Nubinski 06:54, 20 June 2007 (UTC)MXM

The only way that someone gets automatically notified is if you leave on message on their talk page. However, if everyone always replies on the other person's page, the conversation ends up broken up on different pages. So what most people do is keep the conversation on the page where it started, and then put that page on your watchlist (see Help:Watching pages) and you'll be able to see if there is a reply or not (even though you don't get an automatic notification). As for images, they can be a bit tricky at times. You can read Wikipedia:Picture tutorial first, and if you have specific questions after that, please just let me know and I'll help you out. Adding pictures from places that you have visited would be highly encouraged, especially for articles that do not already have them. Just be aware that you have to licence them in a way that allows them to be distributed freely (no copyrighted images, etc.) --Ed (Edgar181) 11:54, 20 June 2007 (UTC)

Did you know?[edit]

Updated DYK query On 20 June, 2007, Did you know? was updated with a fact from the article Salinosporamide A, which you created or substantially expanded. If you know of another interesting fact from a recently created article, then please suggest it on the Did you know? talk page.

Thanks for the new article keep them coming - a bit beyond my field of expertise!!! I'm intelligent but not a genius! ♦ Sir Blofeld ♦ "Expecting you" Contribs 21:25, 20 June 2007 (UTC)
