Genetic Disorder
Presentation
Project


Overview
:

You and your partner are to c
reate a

PowerPoint presentation that will be used to teach the class about a
genetic disorder
. The
presentation
shou
ld provide
the class
with information abou
t an assigned genetic disorder.


The
presentation
should be creative as well as informative.


Be sure to include accurate, up
-
to
-
date information and
graphics that illustrate important ideas. You should reference a
t least four sources of information on a separate
“works cited”
slide.

(
www.google.com

DOES NOT count)


PowerPoint
:

You
and your partner
will research
your assigned
genetic
disorder

and
provide the following
info
rma
tion
on your presentation.

One of you will act as the geneticist, the other the
physician

treating the disorder.


The geneticist will be responsible for the following information:



Cause of Disorder (examples: category of mutation, nondisjunction) (For all

point mutation disorders,
include the missing or mutant protein that is the cause of these symptoms. For all chromosomal mutation
disorders, include a karyotype in a form that can be effectively shown to the class.)

o

be sure to include the gene or chromoso
me that is affected by this disorder; examples: X, Y, #21)



Mode of Inheritance (examples: sex
-
linked, recessive, and/or dominant, random)


The
physician

treating the disorder will be responsible for the following information:



Symptoms of Disorder



Populat
ions Affected (example: gender, race, anybody)



Medical Treatments (
What kind of medical assistance will the affected child need? Will further assistance be
needed, as the child grows older?
What is the long
-
term outlook for the child?
Are

there any treat
ments or
cures?)


General information that should be included into your presentation include:



The name of the disorder and any common names it might also be recognized by.



Graphics should be used to enhance your presentation.



Works Cited (At least four sou
rces are required for this project. More than four is acceptable, and encouraged!

Give credit for graphics you did not make.)


Presentation
:

After researching the disorder

you

and your partner

will be responsible for teaching the class about
your disorde
r.
All of the above information must be included in the presentation. All slides must be easily readable
and should include graphics to enhance your presentation.
It must fully inform the
class
of all issues perta
ining
to
your assigned
genetic disorder.

Your
presentation
will be graded based on accuracy,

completeness, and creativity.
You will turn in a hard copy of your presentation the day presentations are to begin. (You may print the handout
version so that it will print 6 slides per page.)
