Due Date: Thursday, 2nd January, 2020.
• As part of your course grading, you are required to submit a review article during this semester.
• This exercise is meant for to inculcate research temperament and skills by carrying out a deep study of given research topic/area relevant to this course and to find different online sources of data retrieval.
• Write a review article on the following topic.
DNA Damage from Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons, with methods to prevent, reverse or cure that damage
Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAH) are DNA-damaging agents and can cause several types of cancers. Once caused, it is hard to reverse any mutations created by carcinogenic agents. However, different preventive medicines, healthy diet and life style are recommended for prevention. You have to address the possible types of metastatis caused by PAH, the way PAH is contributing to increase in pollution and formation of smog in populated cities/suburbs and what preventive methods should be essentially used to avoid the harmful effects of these agents. You should also address some particular medications, traditional or scientific… that are usually recommended.
Following are the details of academic research paper/review paper: requirements, deadlines and marks.

Your article should have substantial material and not less than 6 pages and minimum 15 research article should be reviewed. The purpose of review article is to gather and consolidate information in one article rather than to read all 15 research papers on this topic.
b) Quality of Writing
The clarity and style of expression, the degree to which your paper obeys the rules to
formal academic grammar, punctuation, spelling, formatting details like paragraph indentation and location of page breaks, are part of quality of writing. Write and edit your review carefully for good organization, clear language with good spelling, punctuation, etc.

*Use of reference manager (e.g EndNote) is highly appreciated
You can access Research Papers on your VULMS account using link [HEC Digital Library], Google Scholar and other online free research paper repositories (Some Journals of Genetics: Infection, Genetics and Evolution, Virus gene, Virology Journal, Journal of Genetics & Genomics, Genome Biology & Evolution Journal, Journal of Genomics, etc.).
Submission and Deadlines
Students are required to finalize and submit their review article by due date.
As the academic research paper carries 15% of the total course grade, therefore it must contain implementation results of the proposed research idea. Similarly, in case of a review paper the “Discussion” section must contain student’s comments/conclusions and future research agenda regarding the domain being reviewed.
Warning: Write in your own words, do not copy-paste. Plagiarism is not acceptable. In case plagiarism is found, you will be awarded ZERO marks. No excuse will be accepted in this regard. For further understanding about plagiarism, please follow the links:
