This LibGuide is designed to help you successfully research your term paper assignment. Here is Professor Hansen's assignmen for your perusal:
Your topic will be a gene or a genetic disease. The point of the paper is for you to explore the topic and communicate what you have found. The biggest problem I have is a paper that sounds like it is written by a P.H.D. in Genetics! You must target your paper to the understanding of your classmates. If we have used a term in class, use it. If you come across an unfamiliar term or procedure, explain it.
Here is an example of how not to do your paper “And then we walked down the Q arm of chromosome 13 a." You must cite your sources in your paper, you can use any style you chose.
Your term paper will be 5 pages double-spaced typed with normal margins and 12pt type. I will give you the topic. You need to have a minimum of three (3) peer reviewed journal references. You must cite your source in your paper, you can use any style you chose. The library will help you learn how to use journal databases. Scientific American is OK, Time isn’t. You can use Time in addition to the three. Be sure to read the appropriate section in your text.
DNA tests for predicting eye, hair and skin colour are currently available or under development, so identification of genes linked with facial features could help create a more detailed “Identi-Kit” picture purely from someone’s DNA. But the researchers caution that the genes they found only have small effects, and are only linked with a limited number of features, limiting their use until more genes of relevance are found.
“It’s a start,” says Manfred Kayser from the Erasmus University Medical Center in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. “But we are far away from predicting what someone’s face looks like.”
