Step 1: Innovations in Biology and Technology – Finding Information Sources and Outline (1%) Choose one of the provided topics (see list below, a-e). Review Is My Source Credible? from the UMGC library. Search the library and/or the internet to locate 3 reliable information sources that you may use for this assignment. The purpose of this step is to get the research process started; you are not required to use these information sources in the final version of your assignment. Write 1-2 sentences for each information source explaining why you believe these sources are reliable using what you learned from the UMGC library article. Write references to the 3 information sources in APA format: Create an outline for the writing assignment. The outline should be in a bullet list format and include the major topics that you plan to include in your assignment, with some supportive detail for each topic. It should not be a draft with full sentences and paragraphs. Here are two resources that may be helpful as you write your outline: UMGC (2020) Outlining What You Will Write. UMGC (2020) Prewriting and Outlining. Please review the grading rubric, and ask your professor if you have questions about this assignment. Topic Choices: Select one of the following 5 topics for your assignment: a) Vaccines. Your friend is worried about the many vaccines that his newborn son is scheduled to receive and asks you for advice since you are taking a biology course. When giving your researched-based advice, you explain…. 1). How “vaccines” work? 2). What are the common chemical components of all vaccines? 3). How the traditional methods used to create vaccines are different than the more recently used biotechnology techniques, including the COVID-19 mRNA vaccines? 4). How the mRNA vaccines work based on your knowledge of the Central Dogma of Molecular Biology? 5). What are some of the diseases that babies and children in the United States are still routinely vaccinated against? 6). How has “vaccinations” impacted the frequency of the diseases over the past 100 years? (i.e. the diseases identified in Question #5) 7). Why do some people/parents have concerns about giving their children vaccines? 8). Why do some people believe that the MMR (Measles-Mumps-Rubella) vaccine can cause Autism? 9). Is there any scientific evidence to support concerns about Autism and vaccines? 10). What would be your advice and conclusion (based on what you have learned from researched articles) regarding how your friend can go about getting the recommended vaccines for his newborn son.
