The paper is a scientific research paper on invasive species (conservation biology). I am required to have at least 5 sources APA, which I have, though the more the merrier, should be at least 5 or 6 pages, and tables and figures from sources can be used as evidence of data.

Activity 1: Integumentary Labs 1 and 2
Download Directions and Table for Labs
Complete the labs.
Activity 2: Cardio-Pulmonary System Lab
Our circulatory and pulmonary systems react to changes in our activity. To better recognize how this works, complete this activity with your team or individually.
First, with your team, using your concept maps, discuss the integumentary and cardio-pulmonary system structure and function.
Now take you pulse and respirations. For help check out Check Your Pulse
Now run in place, or outside if that is possible for five minutes.
Stop and check your pulse and respirations again.
What did you notice? What was the difference?
Discuss with you team, come up with a diagram that show what is happening inside the body as you go from stationary to running.
Activity 3: Case Study
Download and work with your team to complete the case study: Lost in the Desert

Professors Instructors PLEASE READ CAREFULLY*****:
From the following website of the Human Genome Project (cut and paste this link into your browser):
http://learn.genetics.utah.edu/content/disorders/singlegeneeg/ (Links to an external site.)
This will bring you to a list of genetic disorders listed in alphabetical order. Pick one that you find interesting but does not involve chromosomal mutations resulting from an aberrant number of chromosomes (such as Down syndrome or Klinefelter syndrome). Using at least four (4) websites as resources, research and type a 600 word summary describing the disorder. If you click on the tab entitled “Resources” at the page top you can find links to various reliable resources.
Please remember that you must summarize the information in your own words. I will use TURNITIN software to check for originality. Any case of plagiarism will result in a zero (0) and referral to the Academic Dean. A good resource to help avoid committing plagiarism is: http://writing.wisc.edu/Handbook/QPA_paraphrase.html (Links to an external site.).
You should make sure to include the following in your summary:
Name of disorder/cancer and gene that causes it (1pt)
On what chromosome the gene is located (1pt)
Disorder/Cancer symptoms (20pts)
Are there treatments available? If so, what is the treatment? (6pts)
Incidence of the disorder in the human population (how common is it?) (1pt)
Does it affect certain ethnic groups more than others? If yes, list which group(s) it affects. (1pt)
At the end of your summary, list your websites as “References” using the following format:
Name of website. [Retrieved] Date, [from] URL of Website

The topic of the paper should cover some aspect of the broad field of Biology. It must be at least 1000 words in length (NOT including references)
Each section of the paper should have a title, similar to below:
Summary (approximately 100 words)
Even though the summary is positioned at the beginning of the paper, it should be the last part of the paper you complete! All components of the paper (NOT including references) should be evident within these 100 words.
Introduction/background (approximately 300 words)
This part of the paper should contain a short history of the topic you have chosen. This may include the origins of the name, early observations of the phenomenon, and/or important people who contributed most significantly to what is known. You could also briefly discuss what interested you about your chosen topic.
State of the science (approximately 300 words)
In this section I expect a description of the important biological aspects of the topic. “How does it work?” Describe the mechanism of the disease and/or the key aspects of the biology/physiology/ecology being discussed.
Future directions (approximately 300 words)
Finally, discuss the limitations of what is known about the topic and/or what scientists are trying to find out or develop. Examples would include aspects of biology or physiology that are not understood and things being done to deal with a problem/disease.
Referencing (not part of the 1000 words!)
Your paper must have references! Citations in the body of the paper should adequately represent statements made in the paper (NO LESS THAN 6 REFERENCES. USE THE STYLE DESCRIBED BELOW). They should be numbered and shown in the Reference Section at the end of the paper in the order that it appeared.

You are required to write a short “scientific biography” regarding a noble laureate in science and medicine (won in the last 10years). Format for scientific biography: Times New Roman 12 point font, 1” margins, single-spaced, ~2 pages only. Scientific biographies should concisely examine the major scientific highlights of the investigator’s life (Ex. education/training, major laboratory experiments/scientific insights). The paper should also include a concise review of a single published primary manuscript (one with experiments and data) authored by your scientist of interest. Please include a separate work cited page- any standard format is acceptable. A good website to find scientific manuscripts authored by your scientist is: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc.
