A new “hobby” that has arisen in the last 10 years is that of establishing Do It Yourself molecular biology labs in basements (or garages) and amateurs doing freelance genetic engineering. Some entrepreneurs have said this is great because it’s how the computer revolution got started–i.e. in D.I.Y.ers’ basements and garages. What are the bioethics issues related to D.I.Y. labs? Should they be monitored by governmental bodies? The U.S. government will freak out and send in the army if you are puttering with nuclear material, but they apparently have no qualms if you are making transgenic cats, dogs, or viruses in your kitchen. Do you think this is a problem or will the next biomed breakthrough come from an amateur working with equipment purchased on eBay?

Discussion Assignment
In your assigned reading this week you have learned further about the relationship between the structure and function of biological molecules and how this is important in cellular organization.
A single eukaryotic cell not only has a membrane bound nucleus, but also numerous membrane bound organelles. These organelles support the many varied activities that a cell is required to carry out, but also add to the complexity of the intracellular environment. There has recently been an upsurge in the interest around constructing artificial cells, or cell like materials for pharmacological research or possibly even medical treatments.
Keeping in mind the relationship between structure and function, discuss the potential uses of artificial cells and/or cell like materials and whether you consider them to be a good substitute for the natural versions.
For a simple example, a scientist may wish to study a membrane receptor protein, but in isolation from peripheral influences, so it is possible to generate a simple lipid bilayer that mimics the function of a cell membrane, containing that protein of interest. There it can be studied in the presence or absence of any secondary components the scientist wishes to include. A more complex answer might be to discuss the use of synthetic blood as a replacement for blood donors.
You will need to search the internet for your own examples and part of this assignment is to help you practice finding and digesting pertinent information, but the following links are a good place to start:
Wiesauer, M., & Knör, G. (2019). Towards artificial cells for biomedical applications [PDF]. Biomedical Research and Clinical Practice, 4(3). https://doi.org/10.15761/brcp.1000189. Retrieved from https://www.oatext.com/towards-artificial-cells-for-biomedical-applications.php

We will be concentrating on only one section at a time for now so that we can get comfortable with scientific writing.
This week I would like you to concentrate on properly using in-text citations and creating a proper Works Cited page for your lab report. In order to practice this, I would like you to write an Introduction section for this weeks lab section. Reference the lab report for module 2 to refresh your memory on the requirements for an introduction section.
For this week I am looking for the following elements in your report:
A properly written introduction section for the DNA lab
In-text citations in APA formatting: (Last Name, Year)
Proper Works Cited Page in APA formatting
Hint: Easy references to cite for your introduction section are the Labster Lab and your Biology Textbook.
Use the following links as references and examples for APA formatting while writing your introduction and works cited pages:
Explain the use of gene therapy for the treatment of heart failure
Explain the causes of heart failure
Design a viral mediated gene therapy approach
Define “therapeutic gene”
Describe the anatomy and function of the heart from a healthy person vs. a heart failure patient
Produce replication defective recombinant adeno-associated virus (rAAV)

View the video, The Tiny Creature that Secretly Powers the Planet(https://www.ted.com/talks/penny_chisholm_the_tiny_creature_that_secretly_powers_the_planet/transcript?language=en), and either expand on the important role that photosynthetic organisms play for life on this planet or discuss other life-sustaining processes employed by photoautotrophic organisms that are part of the essential functioning of various ecosystems. For example, it is a type of algae (mostly Symbiodinium) that almost all known corals (Cnidarians) rely on to survive.
Once again, you might have to do a bit of research on this topic before constructing your post. Make sure to cite sources.
Finally, it is critical to correctly cite sources. Here are some examples of how you may cite in the discussions:
A study by Smith (1991) on the species……determined that the species was self-incompatible.
The species …. is self-incompatible (Smith, 1991)….
In a study by Smith (1) on the species…..
The species is self-incompatible (1)…..
At the bottom of the post, you will then write:
1. Smith, S., 1991. Pollination ecology …….[you give the full title]. American Journal of Botany 22(3). [you give the full source either in APA or MLA format] If you got the information from a website, you would put the website here. Again, this citation may either follow MLA or APA
