One of the biotechnology techniques is called CRISPR/Cas9 sometimes referred to as a gene editing technology


One of the biotechnology techniques is called CRISPR/Cas9 – sometimes referred to as a gene editing technology.

This technique is very new (first described in 2012) but it is already have a large impact on biology and medicine. In late 2018 you may remember news reports about the first gene edited babies which were born in China. This resulted from an experimental procedure in which CRISPR/Cas9 was used to carry out gene editing in human embryos. There are several links below to some of the scientific and news articles describing these experiments.

This news generated quite a bit of controversy. What do you think about the use of gene editing in humans? Do you think there need to be regulations or controls on the use of this type of technology? In your post first summarize what you understand about what this technology (CRISPR/Cas9) is and how it works, and then share your thoughts on its use.

Below are two articles to start your reading on this topic – feel free to share additional resources or articles that you find interesting and helpful.

It is your first semester as a newly hired assistant professor, and you are developing your lesson plans and

lectures for your undergrad microbiology course. To start your class off on the right foot, you’d like to review some important introductory biology concepts to ensure that all of the students have the necessary biological background knowledge. You have decided to expand your lectures on biologically important molecules. Your first lecture will focus on the formation of large molecules through synthesis reactions and two of the four groups of these large biological molecules: the lipids and the proteins.

Part A – Bond Formation

While writing your lecture notes, you are trying to develop a way to impart to you

Assignment 1 Biology ArticleSelect an article from a magazine or newspaper


Assignment 1: Biology Article

Select an article from a magazine or newspaper

that has something in it that pertains to biology. This will serve as the target article for this assignment. For instance, you can select an article about medicine, invasive species, nature, conservation, genetic technology, ecology, or any other topic that is related to biology. One purpose of this assignment is to help you become aware of how biology is related to your everyday life.

  1. Summarize the article in one (1) or more paragraphs, using your own words. Be sure to identify the article using an in-text citation in the body of the paper, as well as a reference in the reference section.
  2. Explain how the article relates to this course. Identify which biological concepts from the course and / or text are relevant to the topic covered in the article. Citing the course text, discuss the ways in which this course does (or doesn’t) provide background information to help you understand the article and the larger issues surrounding it.
  3. Explain why the article caught your attention. Relate the article to your life and to issues that are important to you. Discuss how or if the scientific knowledge about the topic covered in the article affects you directly or indirectly.
  4. Discuss your opinion on how research on this topic should be funded. State whether you think taxpayer monies should support research on this topic or whether such research in this area should be funded by the private sector. Rate the importance of research on this topic, relative to other areas of research.

In addition to the target article, you should use at least one additional resource, such as your textbook or another article.
