Assignment 1:Edit

Set up your Wikia account (Smith & Jones 1972). Write and publish a Wikia article providing a clear and scientifically accurate explanation of one example of jargon or concept pertaining to genetics, genomics and/or metagenomics with which you were previously unfamiliar.

  1. In this and all assignments, be sure to use your own words and cite your sources.
  2. Carefully read the following Wikipedia articles (a) Genetics, (b) Genomics, and (c) Metagenomics. We will discuss materials from these articles in class on Wednesday 27 Aug. Write down all of the concepts, terms, and jargon with which you are unfamiliar.
  3. As soon as is practical, choose your topic, create the Wikia page, and put up a link to your page in the section below. This allows others to see what topics have been 'claimed'. Consult Prof Burke if you need help or guidance. Try not to duplicate the choices of other students.
  4. Research your chosen topic reputable and reliable scientific sources.
  5. Find or make one or more appropriate figures, photographs, or videos to assist in explaining or illustrating your chosen concept and publish this within your article.
  6. Provide appropriate attributions for all of your sources, both text and graphics.
  7. Be prepared to present your materials in class on Wed 3 Sept.
