Discussion Post: In the Scientific Literature (PubMed)
In our Week 2 “IN THE NEWS” Discussion topic you were asked to explore news outlets to find a lay description of a recent discovery in the field of genetics. Now I’ll ask you to explore the scientific literature to find a primary source.
Go to the PubMed website (https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/ site.) and insert search terms of your choice (e.g., genetics of schizophrenia. genetic predispositions to obesity, genetics of climate change resistance in coral….the possibilities are endless!)
Write a short evaluation of the scientific article in your own words. Feel free to explore and cite the lay literature if the scientific paper is difficult to understand. In addition to your chosen scientific article, you must cite at least one other source.
Your post must be at least 200 words for full credit. Properly cite your references.
