Writing/Presentation – Defined introduction/background, described the topic with nice flow/orientation (the current section of writing should have connection with the previous section and the following section), design (have proper headings and subheadings, figures/tables are indicated in the writing and matching with the context, figures/tables have numbers and captions), proper information on the topic.
Genetics – Adequate information about genetics/molecular biology related to topics (please keep in mind that this project is for the genetics course, so this part is most important here) etc. Well defined diagrams or information cited to explain the genetics/molecular biology part.
Project preparation:
The project should give a clear information about the topic i.e. the audience can learn about the topic from the presentation.
It should go a little beyond the text book – so a research is necessary for the topic (Do not just copy from Wikipedia).
Figures, illustrations, tables are the easiest ways to present a lot of information.
As this a genetics/molecular biology project, these areas must be emphasized in the project.
Title Slide – The first slide
Topic – write the topic on the top-left corner of the first slide (Title slide)
Font: Arial, 20 points, bold, left align
Design: [Student’s choice]
Title – Each project should have a title. Titles need not be exact as the topic, students are encouraged to use some innovative ideas.
After the topic
Font: [Student’s choice], size – around 44 pts., alignment – [Student’s choice]
Design: [Student’s choice]
No name of the presenter/author (should be de-identified)
Except summary, conclusion, and references. Put all materials in these slides
Need not to have a title like “Body”, but each slide should have different titles based on the contents of the slide.
Font: [Student’s choice], size – around 24 pts, alignment – [Student’s choice] (preferable – left alignment)
Should be phrases (a complete paragraph or even a full sentence is not required)
Must be bullet pointed/numbered
Main points/words should be bold
Line spacing – Single/1.25
Paragraph spacing: 4-6 points – before and after. If there are more lines in one slide, can use only 0 pt before and 4-6 pts after. If there are less lines in one slide can use upto 18 pts – before and after
Slide heading/Title: Font: [Student’s choice], size – around 28-32 pts, alignment – [Student’s choice]
Heading 1 (inside the slide) : Font: [Student’s choice], size – around 24-28 pts, alignment – [Student’s choice] (if the slide has 28 pts title, then the maximum size of the headings inside the slide should not be more than 26 pts)
Heading 2 (inside the slide) : Font: [Student’s choice], size – should be at least 2 pts less than the heading 1, alignment – [Student’s choice]
Heading 3: Font: [Student’s choice], size – should be at least 2 pts less than the heading 2, alignment – [Student’s choice].
The last heading (could be Heading 3 or Heading 4): Should have the same font size as the body with bold-italics.
Headings might not need bullet points or numbering
Pictures, figures, tables should be inserted within the text (can use the style/format of the slides used as learning materials)
Tables and figures (follow the style from a book)
Should have numbers
Should have a caption – a brief description about that figure (below the figure) or table (top of the table)
Summary and Conclusion
Summary and conclusion could be on one slide or conclusion and references could be on one slide, i.e. there will be two slides total for summary, conclusion and references
Summary should be bullet pointed
should include main points from the total presentation
Conclusion – The concluding remark based on your whole presentation; in 2-3 sentences.
A brief introduction or background about the topic, a little history, discovery, importance of the topic etc. (use only the heading “Introduction” or “Background”, no other subheadings)
Occurrence, rate (in case of diseases/syndromes)
Global rate, rate in USA, life span, etc.
Symptoms, diagnosis etc. (in case of diseases/syndromes)
Source/Cause/origin etc. (which is relevant to the topic)
Discuss in details about the genetics/molecular biology part here. For example, if it is a syndrome, draw the all possible non-disjunctions, how the syndrome is coming to zygote; if it is gene therapy, diagrams of DNA recombination, DNA hybridization, how retrovirus is incorporating their genome inside the host body etc.; if it is Genetics in medicine or agriculture, then, DNA technology, polyploidy, hybridization etc.
[Can use handwritten diagrams, scan and paste here]
As this is genetics project, the genetics/molecular genetics (the mechanism) should be discussed extensively.
Problems/benefits (for topics like GMO, Gene Therapy etc.)
Treatment (for diseases/syndromes)
Generally, genetic syndromes do not have any cure, but if any situation some medicines are used.
For HIV, Covid-19, recent advancements for the treatment
Students should discuss the outcomes from the whole topics, future direction (if any).
(Never use personal comments, all comments should be based on the information given in the whole writing)
