Genes In A Box
Bioinformatics & Genomics: Research Scientist
The task asked students to select, research and produce a report on a genetic disease. Students then had to respond to a scenario about their chosen disease as if they were “genetic counsellors”.
Adam produced a sophisticated and digestible report on Li-Fraumeni Syndrome that included insight into what it is and its impacts. The counselling advice was well thought out and showed a lot of critical thinking which was made obvious by the supporting ‘punnet square’ sketches that effectively illustrated the content.
