GENETICS – TERM PROJECT


GENETICS – TERM PROJECT
From the list, select the topic of your choosing — this is on a first-come first-served basis!!!!! Send me an email which should contain:

your topic: hereditary chromosome disorders
your name: Aisha Severe

A failure to follow the EXACT above instructions and your choice will not be accepted.
You should write a review paper – MINIMUM of 5 pages – font size 11 and single spacing [this doesn’t include the title page and reference pages or any diagrams, pictures, etc], describing your microbe[s]. Your paper should consist of:
TITLE – ABSTRACT – MAIN PAPER [INTRODUCTION] – CONCLUSIONS – REFERENCES
The main part of the paper can be sub-divided – see the attached review paper as a reference.
This should be a general review of all aspects of your topic but contain a major part dedicated to the genetics behind this topic. This should include a list of references [peer reviewed articles] – NO WIKIPEDIA – NO TEXTBOOKS – NO QUOTES – NO WEBSITES [unless using statistics from CDC, WHO, etc.]. For a good grade this should be of publishable quality – references should include links to complete papers that I can access – if you do not have a link to a paper on the web then you should have a hard copy of the paper and should hand them in with your completed paper – for every link that I cant access there will be a deduction of points – there should only be links to published papers or “official” websites e.g. CDC – there should be no links to general websites AND DEFINITELY NO WIKIPEDIA – ANY COPIED WORK [including taking a sentence and changing a word here and there] WILL RESULT IN A GRADE OF “F” – COPIED WORK WILL ALSO BE SENT TO THE ACADEMIC STANDARDS COMMITTEE
The essay should be sent as an email attachment to me AND posted to the dropbox in the D2L class site by midnight Sunday 14th April.

Essay – 70 points

THIS MUST BE YOUR OWN WORK AND MUST BE IN YOUR OWN WORDS ONLY – ANYTHING COPIED WILL RESULT IN A ZERO GRADE!!!!!!!!!

For your paper – the final written paper should be your own work – no exceptions!!!!!
As you go through papers trying to decide which one to cover – study the style of writing – Science [Biology] writing is not the same as writing an essay for the English Dept.
We don’t use “I” “us” “we”
We don’t use quotes – even if they are cited in the references
The final paper should not include references to your textbook – NO WIKIPEDIA – NO WEBSITES.
The paper will be posted to the class dropbox AND emailed to me by midnight Sunday April 14th – any copying of text will result in a grade of zero – it may also result in being reported to the Academic Standards Committee

GOOD SITES TO TRY TO FIND PAPERS ARE PUBMED AND GOOGLE SCHOLAR

You can set them to refine your search e.g. set the time limit, only have your theme word[s] in the title, etc.
