The rubric is to show you where the points are coming from.

In one discussion post find an example of a set of genes that have been horizontally gene transfered between bacteria or archaea. Which organisms are the genes transfered between? Explain the set of genes that were transfered. Include what they are for and what the advantage to sharing those genes are.
Please don’t fill out this rubric and submit it.
The rubric is to show you where the points are coming from.
Name of Genes (MUST USE SCIENTIFICALLY CORRECT NAMES)
What do the organisms use the genes for?
What might be the advantage be to share the genes with other organisms?
Which organisms the transfer happened between
Binomial names of organims are used and properly written
This does require a little research to find some examples, but there are plenty of examples out there in the scientific literature.
It’s always best to start with a review paper like this one:
https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/fcell.2020.00229/full
From there you can look at the citations for the exact genes involved.

Despite this being at the core of modern neuroscience research, some people are uncomfortable with this position.

IIQ #1: Are You Your Nervous System?
The fundamental theme for the course is that all behavior is based on nervous system activity. Despite this being at the core of modern neuroscience research, some people are uncomfortable with this position.
This IIQ is an opportunity for you to explain your position and defend your position on the fundamental theme for the modern study of the brain and behavior.
Answer the Question: Are we more than just a sum of our anatomical and chemical parts?
Your written assessment of this is your chance to explain what you think in more detail that we can discuss in class.
You should be able to substantiate what you say with specific (and appropriately cited) sources.
Here are some things to consider as you ponder how to best answer this question:
Are we really just a sum of what the neurons, glia, and brain chemicals are doing in our nervous system?
How does what you say in regard to #1 above relate to the human concept of ‘free will’?
The guidelines and grading rubric for this assignment are posted in Canvas. This assignment is due by midnight 7 days after the assignment is posted (for Fall 2022, Wed 10/05 at 11:59 PM).
Instructions
INVESTIGATIVE INQUIRY QUESTION (IIQ) ASSIGNMENTS
At several points during the semester you will be given a question related to the study of the
brain and behavior. The question asked will not be one for which you can look up the ‘right’
answer. Instead, the question will be a thought question. These questions are based on topics
that neuroscientists, ethicists, and natural philosophers ponder.
You will be responsible for researching the question and formulating an organized and coherent
response. What you write should be based on a thoughtful evaluation of your research.
Answers must be in proper English. Points will be deducted for poor spelling, incoherent
writing, in addition to illogical or irrational ideas.
You will have an entire week to complete each of the IIQ assignments during the semester.
The length of each IIQ submission can be variable but should always be LESS THAN 4 (FOUR)
typed, single-spaced pages (not counting references/resources cited).
You will submit you IIQ responses to the appropriate link in Canvas.
Points will be deducted from your grade if you fail to follow the guidelines below.
Your responses to the question should be organized as follows:
1. Restate and explain the question asked in your own words. Explicitly explain the
connection of the question to the study of the brain and behavior.
Your goal is to convince the reader you understand the question being asked.
2. Summarize the research you conducted. What do two or three
scientists/philosophers/politicians, etc. say about the topic.
Internet research is fine as long as you critically evaluate the what is being said and who
is saying it (there is a tremendous amount of brain & behavior nonsense in the internet).
The primary research literature and review articles may be your best resources. The key
is to use whatever resources are at your disposal to learn what others have concluded
about the topic/question. The summary of what other people have said should be in
your own words (avoid the extensive use of quotes).
Your goal is to prove you understand current viewpoints on the question being
asked.
3. Explain what you conclude based on what others write/say/said about the topic. Do you
agree or disagree with what other people think? Why have you taken your position on
the topic? This is your opportunity to explain what you think.
Your goal is to show evidence of deep thinking and consideration of the
topic. Your position should be well-organized and well-defended.
4. References – Provide a list of references and sources cited. If you used websites as part
of your research, the links provided should be active. Points will be deducted for
internet sites (i.e., links) that are not active. Similarly, points will be deducted from
references that cannot be verified.

Only when necessary, you can quote, but these quotes do not count towards the last tally of the number of paragraphs and sentences required from your own writing.

Is the future of medicine resting in Personalized Medicine? What is Personalized Medicine? Are the genomes of individuals needed when practicing Personalized Medicine? Do you think Personalized Medicine will ever take place at the genetic level or is this just wishful thinking? Is Personalized Medicine using genetic technologies already a reality? Which examples of Personalized Medicine at the genetic level are already being implemented? Can we cure cancer, genetic disorders, and even imperil viruses (such as COVID-19 and others) with Personalized Medicine at the genetic level? What is true and what is myth about the genetics of Personalized Medicine?
Investigate about the genetics of Personalized Medicine and write an essay about it. The questions provided above are to motivate you to investigate about this topic; you do not need to answer them one by one. The essay must be at least five paragraphs long, and each paragraph must contain at least five sentences (you can write more than five paragraphs and more than five sentences per paragraph if you wish to do so). The content of your essay must be written entirely in your OWN words. Use in-text citations in parenthesis, APA style, if you paraphrase information from other authors. Paraphrasing is not copy-pasting or copying and changing a few words from other authors’ writings – it is writing it in your OWN words to explain the authors’ writings. Only when necessary, you can quote, but these quotes do not count towards the last tally of the number of paragraphs and sentences required from your OWN writing. You must cite at least three references you used to investigate about this topic at the end of your essay (use APA style).

Discussion Board 2: Integumentary Grant!
You serve on a committee for a charitable foundation that will vote and decide how to fund grant requests for research on diseases of the integumentary system. This research could lead to better understanding of disease mechanisms or new therapies/interventions. The applications for the grants have been narrowed down to three choices.
Out of these choices, you may only choose one to vote for:
1. Alopecia Areata
2. Scleroderma
3. Psoriasis
Which option will you choose and try to convince others to vote for? There is no perfect choice available and all three choices have strong grant applications.
Through this two-part discussion with your classmates, you will state your choice, explain the normal/standard anatomy of the system the disease impacts the most, explain how the disease disrupts this system, and why you chose to vote this way using appropriate and sufficient evidence.
You will then respond to your classmates’ posts to create an interactive conversation involving debating the diseases, comparing evidence, adding detail, asking questions, brainstorming treatment ideas, etc.
Please remember that all of these diseases have merit so keep discussions friendly, or at least civil!
Part 1: Initial Post (Worth up to 50 points)
• Length: 250-500 words
• State and explain your choice. When stating the evidence, consider the challenges that others may have to your evidence and how you could counter those respectful challenges.
• You will need to use at least 3 reputable scientific references to support your post (not including your textbook). Reputable sources= peer reviewed scientific journal articles, accredited websites, or books. Google, Wikipedia, etc. are not acceptable sources.
Part 2: Responses (Worth up to 50 points)
Comment on at least 2 classmate’s discussion submissions.
• Each comment must be 150-200 words!
o Evaluate their post
o You are either adding more evidence to a post that made the same choice as you or challenging another choice (respectfully) with evidence.
o Offer questions or substantive responses to what is said. Offer Research and share information that backs or refutes a point being made (“Good Jobs”, or “I agree” are NOT allowed as your response!!).
See last page for charts to use to organize your thoughts. This is for you and NOT to be handed in.
How will I be graded?
The rubric to this assignment is located in the same spot on Blackboard where this guideline is located, as a separate document. Take a look prior to starting the assignment and let your instructor know if you have any questions regarding expectations.
What kind of sources should you use?
Your information must be credible, accurate, and well supported by evidence. The best sources of information are the research journals and the books as well as webpages maintained by professional societies and organizations. Search for articles and academic material should start with the electronic databases of libraries such as PubMed (opens new window) or other such resources.
Don’t forget to CITE!
You must cite all sources. Citation format must be MLA or APA (Visit the Purdue Owl Writing Lab (opens new window) for instructions on proper formatting)
Examples: In science we primarily use APA. These are basic examples of common citations. Please see the Purdue Owl (linked above) for more details/examples.
In-text citation: When you are paraphrasing from an author, so whenever you a
taking information form a source and putting it in your own words.
According to Jones (1998), APA style is a difficult citation format for first-time learners.
In-text citation quote: If you are taking a quote, you need to include the page number:
According to Jones (1998), “students often had difficulty using APA style, especially when it was their first time” (p. 199).
Reference Page: At the end of the document, you want to make sure you reference all of the sources you took information from.

Please review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the expectations for successful completion.

Use the U.S. Department of Justice website to find and research four police departments and their relationships with their communities.
Write a 1,250-1,500-word comparative analysis of those four departments and their interactions with their communities. Include the following:
Discuss both the negative and positive relationships that these departments have had with their communities.
From a Christian worldview, how could some policies have reflected better ethical decision making that would have enhanced the relationship between the police and their communities? (C.1.4)
How do ethical issues that are faced within the community directly affect the relationship with the police?
Discuss the best practices and behaviors for enhancing community-police relations. Describe which police departments (of the four) would benefit the most from specific best practices. (C.5.5)
Be sure to cite three to five relevant scholarly sources in support of your content. Use only sources found at the GCU Library, government websites/legal case sites or those provided in Class Resources.
