Each student will have the opportunity to complete ONE additional paper that may result in earning up to 30 extra credit points. Students will delve further into a topic that interests them by researching and writing a short research paper (minimum of 750 words, excluding references) in response to specific prompts. All questions must be addressed completely for full credit. These questions are more in depth than the typical discussion questions following each investigation and involve use of multiple external resources to find evidence supporting ideas and responses.
Research a genetic disorder that interests you and write a short paper (minimum of 750 words,
excluding references) in your own words that addresses each of the following guiding questions.
1. What did you pick to research (provide a brief description) and why did you choose this? 2. Is this genetic condition typically inherited or developed sporadically (environmental factors,
epigenetics, etc.)? Explain your thinking. 3. How does/do the gene(s) become mutated or epigenetically altered? 4. What gene(s) is/are involved and what is/are the associated phenotypes with different alleles of
the gene(s)? 5. What are the current treatments? Are new treatments being explored? Elaborate. 6. How have your experiences in BSC1005L supported your understanding of inherited/familial and
environmentally caused forms of genetic conditions?
*Be sure your paper is organized with appropriate paragraphing and headings. This should read as a cohesive paper, NOT a list of answers to these questions. Proofread your paper and remember to cite all sources both with in-text citations and a works cited using MLA format.
