Biology (and other Life Sciences)

You may write on Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO’s), stem cells , cloning, gene therapy, biopesticides, health implications of fracking, or health disparities in different communities. In this paper you will gather and interpret scientific information from a variety of sources and use that information to discuss scientific issues in a current topic in biology.
Writing Guideline:
INTRODUCTION and RESEARCH (20 points): You will introduce the topic with a detailed description of its relation to health and human biology. Diverse points of view on the topic can be introduced here.
ANALYSIS and SCIENTIFIC METHOD (10 points): You will use scientific theories and methods of inquiry to explain phenomena observed in laboratory or field settings. Questions that can be addressed regarding the design of a scientific study in an article:
_Was the experimental design valid based upon scientific method or could it be improved? If so, how?Specifically, did the researchers conduct the research themselves? Does or should this matter? Why or why not?
_ Did the researchers study human or animal subjects? Were the sample sizes large enough in both control and experimental groups? Was a placebo used? What was the duration of the study? Was this conducted over a long enough period of time? Was it a “controlled experiment”?
_ Were there possible opportunities for confounding variables to arise? Could either subject or researcher biases have confounded results? How would you know?
_ Was it a blind or double blind study? Who were the subjects? Were the demographic groups studied (based upon age, genetics, gender, ethnicity, obesity) broad enough or narrow enough to make either specific or more general conclusions?
OPINION: (10 points)
You will also describe ethical or sociological dilemmas arising out of scientific research and applications, which may include those related to social justice, and may have implications for local and/or global communities. You will be giving your opinion here. You will also discuss the relevance of major scientific theories and/or research to modern day life.
You will need at least 2 references for the paper. One will be from a scientific journal. These will be cited within the paper. You will list a reference section at the end of the paper. Use the APA system for the citations.
