Your assignment is to describe an ethical dilemma related to
use of new or emerging technologies in the biological sciences. One question could be how does one’s
identity, hierarchy, power, and privilege lead to differences in their access
to health care?
You may use one of
the following, Genetically Modified
Organisms, GMO’s, Describe GMO’s why you think there are

Here is a guideline for the health disparities topic:
You will identify for example why some people in
society do not have equal access to health care based upon culture, race,
gender or socioeconomic status.
You will also identify ways in where changes can
and should be made in your opinion to promote social justice through equal
access to care or reduce or eliminate health disparities.
You will offer possible solutions to promote
biological literacy and increase access to health services across communities,
nations, or the world.
are more guidelines for the other topics: Stem cells and GMO’s:
Describe an ethical
dilemma for example: related to use of new or emerging technologies in the
biological sciences (stem cell research and GMO’s).
GMO’s: Tell the advantages and disadvantages of use of GMO’s.

You will have at least one reference. There are example references found on
iLearn. Others you can find using for
example the SFSU library site: http://www.library.sfsu.edu/find/dbs/dbselector.php?oSubject=9 This
will be referred to in the body of your paper.
For references refer to the APA site or the Council of Science Editors: http://www.library.cornell.edu/resrch/citmanage/apa
These sites give a detailed description on how to properly
reference an article within a paper.
When citing an article parenthetically within a paper put the author’s
name first and the year the article was published. Example (Murdock 2013). If there are two authors you can place both
names (Campbell and Reece 2008). If
there are more than two authors you will put the first one down and then put et
al (and others). Example (Carnal et al 2013).
Make sure you also list the references at the end of the
For example for a book:
Murdock H. Fundamentals of Human Biology and Health. 3rd
ed., San Diego (CA): Cognella, Inc.; 2013, 227p.
For an article:

Ethnic Groups in California, 1990-2000. Annals of Epidemiology. 2003. Vol. 14

For a website:

Use proper English grammar and spelling with no
contradictions and with all thoughts presented in concise, complete sentences
which are organized into paragraphs. Be

Most importantly, the entire paper should be
written in your own words. You may have occasional quotes for which
you would have to cite a reference.
However, the majority of the paper should be written by you. A score of zero will be given for any paper
containing plagiarism (copying paragraphs, or even a sentence, from any
source) or for any paper showing signs of having been written in conjunction
