|Final Project Ideas for Students wishing a letter grade|
For those wishing a letter grade, you must submit a 4-5 page final paper either on one of the four propsed topics above or on a topic of your own choice concerning genomics and health. To write on one of the suggested topics above, click on the topic title and it will tell you how to do the research for that topic.
If you want to write on a topic of your own choice, you must submit that topic to me via email for my approval before you write your paper. For instance you may wish to write about ethical issues of genetic selection, insurability, genetic discrimination etc. However you must get my approval for your topic before you write your paper. Again you must submit the paper to my via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) with a message on the date of the last lecture in the course or earlier.
