salmonella Week 1 Discusssion: Biodiversity bacteriophage

The Discussions are not simply statements of opinion. They are intended to allow you to expand upon and apply the principles discussed in your textbook, the lectures, and/or other research you conduct. Each week a question will be posed for your consideration. Before answering, you should review the chapters covered during this week and the lectures.

This week we learned about a variety of organisms. There are literally millions of creatures that we live amongst ranging from microscopic bacteria to huge land mammals. Each has their special place in the biosphere and must live in harmony with millions of other creatures. Some of the creatures we have discussed are beneficial to humans and some are harmful.

For this week’s discussion, please select one organism from Prokaryotes, Protists, Plants, Fungi or Viruses that is either beneficial or harmful to humans to discuss AND you may NOT choose the same organism that someone else has already chosen. You cannot claim a topic and your initial post must be ready to post/completed when you post to the Week 1 discussion board.

Your initial post is required to be posted by 11:59 p.m. ET Thursday of Week 1. Your initial post is required to be a minimum of 250 words in length and this MUST be in your own words. You are required to include at least one reference in your initial post and this includes BOTH in-text citations and full reference citations at the end of the post (in APA format). Do NOT use Wikipedia, Blurtit, Yahoo Answers or ANY open blog or ANY open source where anyone can post responses and the information is not verified. These are unacceptable academic resources; be sure to use reliable sources of information and research carefully. Do NOT copy and paste from the Internet. Please do not plagiarize. If you DO quote a phrase word for word (verbatim), be sure to explain the phrase afterward. If you quote directly from the source, you MUST put quotation marks around it and you MUST cite the source properly in APA format, with both an in-text citation AND a full reference citation at the end of your post. It is NOT proper citation to put a source at the end. Paraphrased information (when information from a source is placed in your own words) from a reference also require both an in-text citation AND a full reference citation at the end of your post. Note: Quoted materials do not count towards the 250 word requirement.

You are required to make at least two additional response posts to two different fellow classmates on their topic (or one fellow classmate and the professor) on two separate days and not posted on the same day as your initial post. The response posts are required to be at least 100 words and must be substantive in nature. While pleasantries such as “I agree” or “great job” are nice, they will not count as one of your required posts. A complimentary, philosophical, or off-topic comment does not count as one of the three required entries. For example, it does not help us to tell us that you did not know something before you read an entry. All entries should help everyone understand one or more of the concepts presented. Your posts are required to be posted on at least 3 separate days with all being completed by 11:59 p.m. ET Sunday.

Refer to the rubric below to see how points are allotted for the discussion board post.

The topic for the Week one Discussion: Organisms can be beneficial or harmful to humans. For this discussion, you will research the Internet and choose ONE organism from one of the following groups: Prokaryotes, Protists, Plants, Fungi or Viruses that is beneficial or harmful to humans. Do not write about the group organisms in general. You may NOT choose an organism in the Animal Kingdom. You may NOT choose the same organism that someone else has already chosen. Therefore, it is to your advantage to choose your topic early in the week. In your initial post, describe the organism that you chose and why or how they are beneficial or harmful to humans. Remember that discussion participation is required on a minimum of three separate days through 11:59 p.m. ET Sunday.
