Writing a scientific paper: Choose a topic: Pick a genetic disease for which the responsible gene has been cloned. You can find lists of these diseases at the following Yahoo site: http://dir.yahoo.com/Health/Diseases_and_Conditions/Genetic_Disorders/ The OMIM database is also a useful place to get information to start. Please do not choose Cystic Fibrosis or Fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva. Collect papers: Look for genetics studies, family studies as well as physiology, biochemistry and cell biology

Make a title – active statements work well eg. Grant’s disease is caused by a defective potassium pump Make an outline: Define a title for each section – even each paragraph. Use active statements again. eg. Grant’s disease is a genetic disease that affects breathing The Grant’s disease mutation is on Chromosome 7 A mutation in a potassium pump is linked to Grant’s disease (The two above will be the main sections) Expression of wild type potassium pump reverts Grant’s disease effects in cultured cells Grant’s potassium pump transcripts are expressed in lung cells Treatment of patients with potassium pump blockers has no effect on progress of disease. Microarray analysis suggests potential treatment. These can be used as section titles or as topic sentences (see below)

hoose figures and make them. You can copy figures from some of the papers you read. If so, cite them properly eg (from Smith et al., 1987). The figure with its figure legend should be comprehensible without reading the text. rite paragraphs First sentence is a topic sentence Last sentence is a concluding sentence active voice don’t try to sound academic define your terms, (I am not a medical doctor) if referring to a figure, define the figure but do not duplicate the figure legend.
