Final Assignment Information

Genetic Engineering Genetic Disorder Final Project Overview 

For your own presentation, you will need to research your own disorder and inheritance mode. You will need to be able to:

  • Describe your selected disorder
    • symptoms 
    • real life example of someone who has the disorder
  • Communicate how the genetic component was discovered
  • The location of the gene
  • Where it is expressed
  • What type of mutation confers disease
  • How doctors can test for this disease
  • Treatment and/or cures for this disease

The information you find will go into your presentation with your group. Although each student will focus on a human genetic disorder, you will be divided into a group with the same inheritance mode. Each presentation will be about 75 minutes long in total with about 10 minutes for each individual disorder, and please practice on your own and together before presenting. 

For more help, please ask your Professor or Librarian. Thanks!
