Module 5: Lab Kit: Introduction to Biotechnology Methods Instructions
Performing the Lab Instructions
Each Labkit lab comes with two different documents that have been attached to this assignment and are described below.
Investigative Manual: This document is a PDF containing the instructions to perform each experiment within the lab as well as the background information and content for the lab.
Lab Report: This document is a Word document that you will need to fill out and hand in for grading. The document will have an initial set of instructions, a set of prelab questions, and finally a set of questions and instructions for what to hand in for each activity described in the investigative manual.

YOUR TOPIC IS: Oceanic Apex Predators: Orcas vs. Great White Sharks
The paper would describe each predator in detail and then compare/contrast their hunting skills and end with which predator is the true apex predator and why.
Each student will upload an original essay, on a topic to be selected from the attached list (or another topic approved by the instructor). Only one student will be allowed to select a particular topic. The essay is to be 1.5-spaced. Students must ensure that the file is complete, correctly formatted, and accessible for electronic editing (Word format preferred). It should be presented in the style and format of an article in a refereed biological journal. Please consult a recent issue of that journal, such as Conservation Biology, for instructions of style, format, and references. Single column. Maps and illustrations welcome and encouraged.
The essay is to provide students the opportunity to research a topic of interest in some depth and to learn to use library research materials and sources to gain knowledge of their selected topic. The Web of Science or Google Scholar is a great place to start your online research. The essay is also an opportunity for you to develop skills in scientific writing for a particular journal. This takes time so start early. If I find a sloppy, poorly researched text, your grade will suffer.
Essays will be graded for both style and content, as a scientific manuscript. One part of the total grade will be assigned for “Style and Format”. This includes spelling and grammatical errors, as well as the detailed requirements for the journal (the form used for citation of references, etc.). The rest of the grade for the essay will be assigned for “Scientific Content”. This includes both the factual material in the essay and the synthesis, discussion, and interpretation of the topic. Students are encouraged to prepare preliminary drafts of their essays well in advance of the deadline, to submit them to me for comments and suggestions, and, if they wish, to exchange drafts of their essays with several of their classmates for constructive criticisms and comments. Essays should not be less than twelve nor more than twenty pages in total length. The deadline for submission of essays is posted in the Class Assignment calendar.
The term paper must be original and produced by the student for this assignment.
Please also see uploaded files for more example papers and specifics.

Open to bid negotiation! Lab report is drafted but need help in the introduction

Open to bid negotiation! Lab report is drafted but need help in the introduction and discussion part of the lab with supported sources for both parts. There are two citations already listed (not MLA formatted) but if you are able to find other useful ones then I consent in changing the sources (Only 2). No direct in-quotation, paraphrased preferred. I have uploaded lab study, lab report format, and the drafted lab report. I will appreciate anyone’s help and please do not hesitate to communicate with me for further details.

You will have to write an introduction section base on my research project about

You will have to write an introduction section base on my research project about giving-up densities (GUD) on squirrels. I want you to at least 10-15 peer-reviewed articles on google Scholar about giving-up densities (GUD) on squirrels. It can be gray squirrels or fox squirrels or any squirrels or any animals such as chipmunks. You will have to include an introduction, and literature cited. To guide you through the introduction section, you need to use the instructions on how to write an introduction that I provided for you in the upload files. I will give you an example of an introduction that I wrote in one of my scientific reasearch paper. Please make sure you look at that. MAKE SURE YOU DON′T USE PLAGIARISM IN THE RESEARCH PAPER. THIS IS A SENIOR-LEVEL COURSE. Even if you are paraphrasing, you still need to use an in-text citation to what you paraphrasing about. Please make sure that you use in-text citations. Instructions may change, so please be aware of that. Also, make sure that you start off the introduction well. Please make sure you look at all documents in the upload files.

If you would prefer to not make a video for the final project you may do a 5-8 p

If you would prefer to not make a video for the final project you may do a 5-8 page paper (double-spaced, 12 pt font).
Similarly to the video project, it must be centered around a question – this question should be your title. It should be sufficiently specific enough that you can give a decent answer in 5-8 pages. Your paper should thoughtfully answer your question, using scientific information (from peer-reviewed primary literature, review articles, books – no random websites!). You can think of it as a short review paper of your topic.
You must cite all information in-text as (author, year) and include an appropriately formatted reference list at the end of your paper. You have already turned in your references, but your submission should include an updated reference page with all references you used for your project. All references must be peer-reviewed, primary literature (review articles and books are also ok).

2. Candice went to the doctor’s office complaining of jaw discomfort and stiffness in her muscles. Additionally, she has started to experience muscle spasms. When examined, her body temperature was 102°F and she had blood pressure of 145/95 mm Hg. In discussing her recent injuries, she mentioned that she was cleaning out her garage two weeks earlier and accidentally cut her hand on a rusted nail. She had cleaned and bandaged it, but decided not to seek medical attention for it as it was not a deep cut. After discussing her health history with her doctor, Candice admitted that she had not kept up with her booster vaccinations in the past 15 years.

I asked you to write me a reasearch paper on stem cells around a month ago which was great. This second paper builds on the work done in the first paper, with the emphasis this time around on the ethical, legal,
social, and/or political implications and controversies surrounding the tech/practice (t/p) discussed in Paper 1. You could choose to focus on the ethical implications of a
t/p, or analyze that t/p through one or more of the various ethical approaches. Similarly, you could consider the religious
implications of the t/p via a survey of various religious responses, or take a deep dive into a particular religion’s response. Or
you consider the social or political implications of the t/p, offering a critical, Marxian, libertarian, post-modern, etc., take on
the topic. You could take a sociological or anthropological approach, perhaps comparing the reception or use of the t/p in one
society to another, or to how cultures in the past responding to similar t/ps. You could lean into the law and look at
legislation proposed or passed in response to the t/p, court cases, or legal questions which have been/are likely to be raised.
As with the first paper, I don’t expect you to cover all ELSPI aspects of the t/p: pick a lane, and stick to it.
This paper may include some description, but should be more analytical and, unlike in paper 1, it is not only acceptable
but encouraged for you to offer your own well-reasoned and informed take on the tech or practice. Thank You!
