Unformatted text preview: NCBI’s Advanced Resources and other Genetics Websites Michele R. Tennant, Ph.D., M.L.I.S. Rolando Milian PCB3063, General Genetics March 2011 Today’s Session Your term projects NCBI databases and tools – Structures – MapViewer – dbSNP – Entrez Gene Genetics website – GeneTests Project Poster Poster content: – 1/3 text, 2/3 figures and tables with legends (55 pts) Style: – Choose an authorized house style; includes figures, tables, references, etc (10 pts) Poster presentation: – Questions about content and references (15 pts) Peer grading: – Team members grade team members (15 pts) Your Poster • Text – No more than a sentence or two describing the disease and its symptoms • Rest of text should cover all aspects of genetics • Mode of inheritance • Map location and gene structure • What protein is encoded by gene; normal function of protein • Types of mutations and what they do to protein; how do they cause disease? • Etc. • For all of the genetics - evidence for this knowledge; experiments, explanations, etc • Figures and tables can help here Your Poster • Important feature of your text – How do the researchers know what they know? What is the evidence? What sorts of experiments were done, and how do the results explain what is known? Poster • References • Use 10-12 peer reviewed journal articles • Each source must be cited within the text (or figure/table legends) and in the references section at the end • Follow “house style” rules for citing in the text, in the references, and even for naming the “references” section Poster • Figures and Tables: Photographs, diagrams, tables, etc. • Do not just reproduce tables – compile, explain, add information • Each must have a “legend” written in your own words describing what it depicts • Use “house style” for labeling, numbering, referring to in text, etc. Oral Defense Please be prepared to review the full content of your poster and to engage in discussion about the hereditary basis of your disorder with Drs. Miyamoto and Tennant, the graduate/ undergraduate TAs, and any faculty/student visitors. You should obviously know your poster, but also the background research (e.g., articles, NCBI resources, associated lecture materials, and group discussions) that is essential to understanding your human genetic disorder. House Style – Every journal has its own rules for “style” Format for citations (within text and in the “references” of poster) Format for tables and figures, and their legends – Find rules on the journal’s website, or by looking in recent print issues – Rules often called “Instructions for authors/ contributors”; “Style”, etc. House Style – For this assignment – DO NOT follow...
