In regards to the genomics part of the course or lab experience, list the top three aspects that HINDERED your learning the material well.

  • 1. Not a user friendly site.  2. The information was presented in a confusing manner.  3. I was not too interested in the experiment.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              
  • MAGIC tool was not very user friendly. I sometimes was unsure of what purpose certain aspects of the experimental procedure had and simply followed the guide without understanding.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               
  • - professor's explanation of material  - Some things were left out of MAGIC Tool handout  - Data retrieved from microarray was only from repressed no induced was present                                                                                     
  • I didn't know vocab very well and didn't feel like it was explained thoroughly.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    
  • The microarray broke and could not be scanned.  MAGIC TOOLS gave us several problems while trying to analyze data.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 
  • Magic tool software was not user friendly                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          
  • Magic tool is a funny program, as is to be expected from a derived program.  It worked, but it took a few weeks to figure out its peculiarities.

  • The videos on the GCAT website, hands on practicing lab skills before I was required to perform them, and the quizzes from the website.

  • How magic tool worked.  The instruction manual is not made for beginners.  My professor provided help guides that enabled us to get through it.
