 Assignment 3: Social and Ethical Implications Due in week 7 and worth 80 points Continuing on your research from Weeks 3 and 5. Provide an analysis of the social and ethical implications of your chosen biotechnology. Strive for an even-handed honest-broker approach in which you carefully analyze the possible benefits of the technology, as well as any possible drawbacks. For now, hold back on disclosing your point of view (you’ll get a chance to express your opinion in the final paper in Week 9). For both benefits and drawbacks, state whether these are based on actual evidence, or based on speculation about possibilities. Consider the possible biases of both proponents and critics, if appropriate. Finally, address whether there any special ethical considerations that go beyond simply looking at the risks and benefits. This assignment should be at least one page of double-spaced text (about 300 words) but not much more than two pages of double-spaced text (about 600 words). As always, think of the expected length as a proxy for how much to cover and how much detail to go into. In addition to your general remarks, you will need to go into depth on several issues to meet the expected length. Describe your points in a clear manner, and support them with explanations, examples, and discussions. Hint: Merely providing a list of issues will not be sufficient for a good grade. You need to describe the issues fully, and support them. Do not copy any bulleted lists from your sources. You must have a reference section which contains an SWS reference to your chosen article and all other sources. Additionally, you must provide in-text citations (in SWS format) to your references in the body of the text. Integrate all sources into your paper using proper techniques of quoting, paraphrasing and summarizing, along with your in-text citations. Double-space your paper. Use standard margins and fonts. Also, follow any additional formatting instructions provided by your instructor. Objectives evaluated by this assessment: 1. Categorize a wide range of organisms, from single-celled to multi-celled organisms. 2. Describe how organisms acquire and utilize both energy and material. 3. Describe the cell cycle, cell reproduction, and control. 4. Investigate DNA and gene expression as well as technologies based on our understanding of them. 5. Discuss interactions between organisms in ecosystems. 

Misconceptions about scientific concepts that are widely accepted by the general public.

Content: There are many misconceptions about scientific concepts that are widely accepted by the general public. Some topics include cracking your knuckles cause arthritis and it takes seven years to digest gum. Students are required to research a topic of their choosing and write a term paper on it following the guidelines below. For assistance in choosing a topic, please consult the internet or your professor.
Be sure to use credible sources when conducting your literature search. One of the sources MUST be a credible scientific source such as Science Daily, Science News or Scientific American. Websites ending in .gov, .edu or .org are also great resources. Make sure that all sources are properly cited within the text and on a References/Works Cited page.
Due Date and Submission: Students will complete this assignment and submit an electronic copy by 11:59 pm on 4/20/18. No paper or email submissions will be accepted; this assignment MUST be submitted via Blackboard.
Grading: This assignment will be graded out of 100 points. For a breakdown of points, refer to the second page.
Paper Format: Students are expected to turn in a minimum of 4-pages. Use double-space, 12 pt. Times New Roman font, and 1-inch margins on all sides of the pages. The first page is the title page. Be sure to include a creative title and use center alignment. The body of the paper will be a minimum of 2 pages (excluding graphics). The last page will be the References/Works Cited page.
Failure to comply with format guidelines will result in point deductions.
Drafts: The literacy assignments will be submitted through SafeAssign which is a database that checks for plagiarism. Students are able and encouraged to submit drafts before the final submission to check the percent similarity (plagiarized material). The percent similarity must be below 15%. The instructor will not view the drafts unless requested by the student.

What are some lifestyle changes that could be made to decrease a persons risk of developing cancer.

Question 1

Personal habits and individual choices can impact a person’s risk of developing cancer. What are some lifestyle changes that could be made to decrease a person’s risk of developing cancer.

Question 2
examine cellular interactions to recognize contributive factors to mental and physical being;

Question 3
In many areas where WHO works, there are many illnesses caused by different types of microorganisms.  Understanding the field of microbiology will help you to sort out the harmful and beneficial effects of microorganisms.  Think about what you already know about microbes.  Are they all bad? See if you can think of beneficial and harmful microorganisms.  What tools would you need to identify microorganisms that cause disease?

Question 4
Trace the history of microbiology, choose one scientist, what did this scientist discover, and how did it impact the human life? 

Question 5
Please watch the following short video regarding the chain of infection. 

After watching the video, briefly discuss the chain of infection for the following examples, indicating the following; what type of pathogen is this, what disease does it cause, mode of transmission of this pathogen, and does it need a vector for transmission? 
1. E. coli
2. Toxoplasma gondii 
3. Plasmodium falciparum 
4. Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV)

How does the DNA in the synthetic organisms differ from DNA in naturally-occurring microorganisms?

“Synthetic chromosomes, Transcriptomes, and Patents on BRCA genes”
For your primary post, please respond to one of the following three topics with a post of at least 125 words that addresses each point given in the instructions. Also, please reply to at least one fellow student on any topic.
Topic 1 [videos]:  It’s parent was a computer file. Watch the short video about organism with the synthetic chromosome that was created at the Craig Venter Institute (1)* and the video about the “streamlined” version that organism(2)*.   Subsequently, answer the following:

(a) How does the DNA in the synthetic organisms differ from DNA in naturally-occurring microorganisms?
(b) What do you think we’ve learned from these experiments?
(c) In your opinion, what are the inherent risks of this research to human health or to the environment, if any?

Topic 2 [article]: Transcriptomes. The complete set of all DNA in a cell is called the genome. The complete set of all the mRNA in a cell is called the transcriptome. Read the following article about the transcriptome (1)*, then address the following:

(a)  What does the transcriptome tell us that we can’t get from the genome? 
(b)  If we compare the transcriptome between cells that have completely different functions in the body, how do you think they would compare?
(c) Explain how this concept relates to our lesson on gene expression from Chapter 7.

Topic 3 [research]: Patent protection for BRCA genes. On the Internet, read one or more articles about how the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) ruled in the caseof Association for Molecular Pathology versus Myriad Genetics. In your answer, you must give credit to your source(s). Your answer must address the following:

(a) Describe some of the major reasons why the plaintiffs objected to Myriad’s patent on the breast cancer-related genes, BRCA1 and BRCA2.
(b) Describe the SCOTUS ruling regarding naturally-occuring DNA sequences, as well as their ruling regarding DNA sequences that do not exist in Nature.

Note: the rulings of lower courts are NOTof interest for our purposes. Please concentrate only on SCOTUS’s ruling. The objective here is to emphasize the precedent-setting ruling of the highest court (SCOTUS), rather than to recount the litigation history. 

(c) What is your view on the issue of whether we should allow human genes to be patented?
Be absolutely sure that you cite your sources, and list your references.
