The length of a dog’s tail is an inherited trait. The allele for short tails is dominant (T) over the allele for long tails (t). A dog breeder mates two short-tailed dogs (parents). One parent is homozygous and the other is heterozygous for this trait. A litter of twelve puppies, all with short tails, is produced (first generation). The breeder mates one of the first generation dogs with a short-tailed dog from another litter. A litter of ten puppies is produced (second generation). The breeder is surprised when one of the second generation puppies has a long tail. Describe the genetic make-up of the parents and puppies that produced this inheritance pattern.

“Hawaiian Bobtail Squid, Virus Reassortment, and Endophytes”

Many bacteria are helpful, rather than harmful, and some even form partnerships with other organisms. This week you will explore the power of bacteria and viruses. For your primary post, respond to one of the following three topics. Also, please reply to at least one fellow student on any topic.

Topic 1 : The Hawaiian Bobtail Squid and its bacterial endosymbiont. In a 4-minute video clip (1), Bonnie Bassler explains the relationship between the Hawaiian Bobtail squid and it’s endosymbiont, the bacterium Vibrio fisheri. Answer the following two questions about this arrangement: (a) What are the main characteristics of the partnership between these two species? (b) How does each species benefit?

This assignment is a reflection over what you have learned throughout the quarter. Please look back through any/all class materials – the readings, information from the “mini lectures,” class discussion activities, links, poster session information, vocabulary lists, etc… to prepare for this paper.

Assignment Specifics
Your paper should be 5 paragraphs, approximately 2-3 pages long, typed, single-spaced, 12-point font (geneva or arial), 1-inch margins. You will have minimally one reference cited. Your “works cited” page will be separate from the body of the paper (in addition to the 2-3 pages of text).

Paragraph #1 : Explain what you knew, or thought you knew, about epidemics, Ebola and Zika at the beginning of the quarter. What were your impressions or preconceived ideas of last year’s Ebola outbreak and this year’s Zika outbreak? What was your opinion on the danger to the United States before you took this class?

Paragraph #2 : Explain what you knew, or thought you knew, about vaccines at the beginning of the quarter. What were your impressions or preconceived ideas of vaccines/vaccination? What was your opinion on vaccines/vaccination before the class began?

Paragraphs #3-5 : Select a total of three pieces of information from the quarter to write about (see the list A thru C, below). You should include at least two different topics (you may prefer to write about three different topics, that’s ok). You may write about your topics in any order. Pay close attention to the prompts, so that you answer completely the questions asked for each of these paragraphs – they are different!

    A.  What was the most surprising  thing you learned all quarter? Describe what most surprised you and why. Now, go tell someone about it – your best friend, your boss, your brother, your aunt, anyone who is not a member of this class. Describe his/her reaction and any conversation that followed.

    B.  What was the most interesting  thing you learned all quarter? Describe what most interested you and why. Then, go find out something more about this topic and tell me about it. For this part of your assignment, evaluate the information source that you used using the 5 criteria of currency, relevance, authority, accuracy, purpose (review the library research basics link). Be sure to reference your resource using MLA format. Your information source must be different from any that were assigned during the quarter (you’ll have to find new articles or websites)! Put the source evaluation information on the “works cited” page along with the citation.

    C.  What was the most important  thing you learned all quarter? Describe what was most important to you and why. Then, tell me what you’re going to do about it – how will this information affect you in the future? Will it affect future decisions or actions? Convey the impact of this information.

Paragraph #6 : Summarize your knowledge and understanding of vaccines/vaccination, epidemics, and Ebola after one quarter of this topic. Have any misconceptions been cleared up? What are your impressions and opinions now? What are your opinions about the dangers and international issues after completing this course?

Throughout the paper, make sure to check your grammar and spelling and use vocabulary appropriate to the topic whenever necessary.

discussion 3

 

This discussion board is based on the Frontline health policy documentary, Sick Around the World.You should watch the film and then respond to the discussion questions below.

https://www.pbs.org/wgbh/frontline/film/sickaroundtheworld/ (Links to an external site.)

Note About the Film:  This documentary was filmed in April 2008 as the debate over how to reform America’s health care system was heating up.  Think about how our system may have changed since the passage of the Affordable Care Act in March of 2010.  There may be more similarities with these countries now that the Affordable Care Act has been enacted.  

Based on the countries discussed in Sick Around the World, if you had to choose which country to live in based solely on its health care system, which country would you choose?   Discuss WHY you would choose that country instead of the other countries discussed in the documentary.  Support your decision with information from the documentary.
