DISCUSSION POST MUST BE 10+ SENTENCES AND THE PEER REVIEWS MUST BE 7+ SENTENCES PLEASE USE YOUR OWN WORDS AND DO NOT COPY FROM OTHER SITES STAY ON TOPIC ,BE POSITIVE , AND DO NOT COMMENT ON GRAMMAR ERRORS. TALK DIRECTLY TO CLASSMATES IN PEER REVIEWS!!! YOU MUST COMPLETE BOTH PEER REVIEWS AND DISCUSSION QUESTION!! THANK YOU.
1) DISCUSSION QUESTION
Part 1: Post a Response
Reflecting on the work that you have done and the articles/videos that you have read and watched, what do you think is the most interesting or useful topic that you explored? Which topic do you wish wasnâ€™t included in the course? Next, if you could change this course in any way you wanted, what would you like to see?
(CRISPR was also my most interesting topic)
2) PEER REVIEW #1 (CHRISTINA)
Good Morning Classmates and Dr. Cox.
This course has been a tad challenging but very interesting. The topic that I found the most interesting was a few weeks ago in week 6. I learned about CRISPR and how this system can improve humans well-being. There are now ways to have control over human evolution and now able to change the code of life. This is something that obviously needs to be majorly regulated but, this was very interesting and blew my mind. Knowing that there is a way to better treat HIV and other diseases is exciting. I wouldn’t change anything about this course and I hope that everyone had an awesome semester! Thank you Dr. Cox for all that you did, you are a wonderful professor!
3) PEER REVIEW #2 (CYNTHIA)
The most interesting one for me was the apoptosis. Apoptosis is programmed cell death. This happens when a cell is formed, but something happened during DNA replication that caused for a mutation to form, so the cell dies rather than keep dividing to form a whole region of bad cells. It helps our body because it prevents cancer from forming. If apoptosis doesn’t happen, then cancer cells are more likely to form, because cells that have a problem aren’t dying as they should be. Furthermore, the one that shouldn’t have been in the course was the Snake and the Squirrel. I understand that each location of each species have to adapt to their environment and it’s kinda common sense to do so but, I did learned that the snake and the squirrel had to programmed their body to strengthened their ability for survival. I guess what I would of wanted to see more is the structure of cells in the human body. This class was challenging but I made it through.
