For this project, you will be researching a genetic disease and developing an informational presentation about this disease. This assignment is asking you to synthesize your knowledge about cells, reproduction, DNA and genetics. You will apply this information to a genetic disease to evaluate how the disease and treatments function. Then, you will connect the information about biotechnology we’ve covered to review potential up and coming treatments for the diseaseObjectivesThis assignment is meant to asses your knowledge of the material in Unit 2, which includes DNA, genetics, and cellular reproduction. Additionally, this assignment will be assessing mastery of the following Student Learning Outcomes:Assimilate information from various sources and apply critical thinking to form evidence-based conclusions to concepts in the realm of biology.Demonstrate an understanding of all levels of biology, with emphasis on cell theory, cellular systems (morphological, physiological, developmental) and genetics.Step 1: choose a diseaseFor disease topic I had choose: Article of Breast CancerStep 2: understanding the diseaseThrough the creation of your project, you should be able to express a depth of knowledge about the genetic disease. This knowledge should center on the following guidelines:Background of disease: include the name of the disease, any alternate names used, who discovered the disease, and when the discovery occurredType of genetic disorder: specific type of disorder that causes the disease and an explanation (for example, if you choose trisomy 21, what does trisomy mean?)Inheritance: explain if and how this disorder is inheritedImage/Graphic: Use at least two images to help the audience understand the cause and/or inheritance pattern of the diseaseThis could be a karyoptype, a pedigree, a DNA sequence, etc. *** (FOR THIS, I WILL UPLOADS PICTURES UNDER FILE, PLEASE YOU THOSE PHOTOS ON THE PROJECT) ***Impacts of the disorder: explain the symptoms and effects the disorder causesDiagnosis and prognosis: describe how individuals are diagnosed with the disorder and what is a typical prognosis Treatment: explain treatments that are available, if any.Research: explain current cutting edge research being done to treat or cure this disease from at least one institution. Cite your work: at least four sources must be cited, in MLA styleStep 3: present your findings You will be creating an informational presentation of whatever format you choose to communicate your research. This could be a video, a pamphlet, a powerpoint, a blog post – whatever! Get creative – if you were looking for summative information on this disease, what form would you like it to take? I would suggest staying away from an interpretive dance, the scientific meaning may be lost in that format. *** (FOR THIS, I WANT TO CHOOSE DOING THE PROJECT AS A POSTER, PLEASE DO A POSTER ON WORD DOCUMENT AT LEAST 2 PAGES)********** I WILL UPLOAD PORJECT RUBRIC UNDER FILE AS WELL. PLEASE LOOK AT THE RUBRIC, READ THE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY *****Lymph nodes
Where Are Your BRCA Genes?
