Watch some news shows, read some newspaper articles. Look up a Blog. Whatever! Identify a source that discusses a biochemistry-related topic in some detail. Some examples include brief discussions about metabolism, diseases, genetic mutations, vaccine/drug development or even scientific situations that are ethically questionable. Once you have identified a scene you will introduce your topic, and include the following:
- The specific source you are using. Either a link to it, or paste the article into a word document.
- Summarize the scientific concept being discussed. Detail is key here. It shouldn’t have to be long, but it does need to have DETAIL! Use appropriate scientific terminology. Including a diagramof a pathway or process, and/or chemical reactions, is encouraged if appropriate.
- Why is this topic of concern to society in general?
