Genetic disorder category[edit]

If I see it well, a big part of Genetic disorder articles should be in the congenital genetic disorders' category. NCurse Nuvola apps edu science.png work 11:59, 7 August 2006 (UTC)

I think you are correct - I've been wondering about that, and I think it applies to most of them... Perhaps "Gulf War syndrome" is an acquired genetic disorder, and some of Category:Radiation effects. See also Category_talk:Genetic_disorders and Category talk:Congenital genetic disorders. --apers0n 12:29, 7 August 2006 (UTC)

But, to be honest, Congenital genetic disorder should be merged into Genetic disorders. I understand that not all types of genetic disorders manifest early after birth (see Huntigton's disease), but the mutated gene or condition is inherited in both cases.

Article rating[edit]

The progress grading scheme and the Article Alert Status appear to be doing the same thing, I wonder if we need both? --apers0n 05:28, 13 September 2006 (UTC)

I'm not sure I understand. You mean the template and the table are the same? NCurse work 10:50, 29 September 2006 (UTC)

I understand you now. We've worked so much with the article rating, but this list is much better and updated by a bot. When we're ready with the rating, we should change to that list. NCurse work 08:42, 9 October 2006 (UTC)

I guess we are using the bot updated table now? Should put a note on the article - I nearly manually edited it Leevanjackson 18:32, 6 January 2007 (UTC)

Oh, thanks for the suggestion. I put a short note right now. NCurse work 17:54, 8 January 2007 (UTC)

Good articles[edit]

We have plenty of great articles, borderline FA articles. I think we should nominate them to become good articles. What do you think? In the first table, you can find at least 5 of them. NCurse work 10:50, 29 September 2006 (UTC)

Good idea - it would be good to start improving the article ratings as well as grading them. --apers0n 18:09, 11 October 2006 (UTC)
But what do you think about our list? (section above) It's not necessaire to keep this one if the other is much better. NCurse work 18:14, 11 October 2006 (UTC)
Let's change to the new list. --apers0n 09:02, 12 October 2006 (UTC)

Animal genetic disorders[edit]

Lethal white syndrome is a genetic disorder of horses. Do we include this in the project and in the Category:Genetic disorders? --apers0n 09:02, 12 October 2006 (UTC)

No. It's part of veterinary medicine. It needs a new category. NCurse work 14:55, 12 October 2006 (UTC)

Who rates articles?[edit]

This may be a bit of a newbie question, but who rates the articles and how does one go about recommending an upgrade of status for a given article? Medical geneticist (talk) 02:22, 10 August 2008 (UTC)

Simple answer, anyone in the project, but advisable to get a second opinion to get to A rating ... I think ;) LeeVJ (talk) 23:06, 10 August 2008 (UTC)
