=== Discussion ===
 
-
 
-
* How well did the GenMAPP Builder process work for your species (just comment on the technical aspects here, you will discuss the teamwork/process aspects in your individual assessment).
 
-
* Discuss the MAPPFinder results for your microarray dataset.  Compare it to what was reported in the original paper you got the microarray data from.

Individual Journal Assignment

  • Store this journal entry as "username Week 14" (i.e., this is the text to place between the square brackets when you link to this page).
  • Create the following set of links. (HINT: you can do all of this easily by adding them to your template and then using the template on your pages.)
    • Link to your journal entry from your user page.
    • Link back from your journal entry to your user page.
    • Link to this assignment from your journal entry.
    • Don't forget to add the "BIOL398-01/S11" category to the end of your wiki page.

Preparation for Final Paper/Presentation

The purpose of this week's assignment is to prepare you for the final paper and presentation due during Finals week.

Final Paper

Style Sheet

Use the following guidelines when formatting your paper.

  • 1" margins
  • double-spaced
  • Times New Roman, 12 point font
  • Number the pages
  • Title page should include a descriptive title for your project, your name, the course number and name, and the date of submission
Introduction

The introduction gives the background information necessary to understand your paper. The introduction should be in the form of a logical argument that "funnels" from broad to narrow:


Shared Journal Assignment
