Three Parent In Vitro Fertilization Research Paper

Biology 101 – Fall 2014

This writing assignment is designed to provide opportunities for the student to find, evaluate, 

select, synthesize, organize, cite, and present information and arguments clearly and effectively 

for understanding scientific issues on personal, societal, and global levels. 


You are the long-suffering aide to Congresswoman Smith, a well-meaning but excitable 

member of the U.S. Congress. She has been too busy working on her re-election campaign to 

learn about a topic her constituents are concerned about: three-parent in vitro fertilization 

(I.V.F.). She needs to be educated on the topic of three parent I.V.F. Because she knows that 

you are a CSUF student, and therefore highly scientifically literate, she has asked you to prepare 

a 1000-word (maximum) topic summary paper. Your congresswoman is extremely busy, has 

many other commitments, and is not a biologist. Therefore you need to be concise and clear, yet 



In your paper, you will include the following (about a paragraph for each point):

• Briefly describe what in vitro fertilization is, how it is used to help with reproductive

issues today. Who generally uses I.V.F. and how successful is it?

• Briefly describe what mitochondria are and how they are inherited from the parents (you 

may need to look this information up, but we will discuss some aspects of this in class).

• Briefly describe how mitochondria from a third party are incorporated into an embryo. 

Use your knowledge of biotechnology and cells to explain these methods. You need to 

include two methods of the incorporation of mitochondria.

• Briefly describe two diseases that this technology can be used to treat or prevent. 

• In your final paragraph, address your opinion on the use of three parent I.V.F. Your 

response must be supported using scientific data and logic to support your personal 



Make sure to read the following article from the New York Times: 

“Three Biological Parents and a Baby” By Karen Weintraub, December 16, 2013

You should also review relevant chapters in your textbook, and use other sources to fill in 

missing information. You must use and reference at least two additional sources for this 

paper besides the New York Times article listed above and your textbook (making the 

minimum references for your paper 4). Keep in mind that your paper should be well 

supported by evidence and having a good number of quality sources will help in this regard.

It is important that your paper be thoroughly researched and clearly written. You should 

define all your terms and be concise (1,000 words maximum). This assignment is designed to 

give you the experience of applying your knowledge of biology to a current controversy or topic 

of interest. You will use the same sort of method that you will later use as an informed citizen 

and consumer when making decisions that involve biology. Other resources

Primary Sources: You will find information in the “primary literature,” which is where the 

research was originally published. You can find these articles by using CSUF’s on-line search 

engines, or by asking for the help of a CSUF librarian. Examples of the primary literature 

include Science, Nature, Proceedings of the National Academy, and Genetics.

Secondary Sources: You may also find relevant articles in recent newspapers, popular 

magazines, or popular science journals. These are referred to as “secondary” sources, since they 

describe research that was published elsewhere. Examples of these include The New York Times, 

The Los Angeles Times, The Guardian, Time, Scientific American, Discover, New Scientist, and 

Science News.

Websites: If you choose to use a website, be aware that most websites are not peer-reviewed, and 

often present inaccurate information. Examples of excellent websites include those of the 

National Academy of Science, the National Institute of Health, the Centers for Disease Control, 

and WebMD. If you are unsure of the appropriateness of a website, check with your instructor. 

Alternatively, the CSUF library has an excellent guide to evaluating websites at 

http://library.fullerton.edu/ under Guides for Undergraduates.

The structure of your response

• Be sure to cover all five points mentioned above and define all technical terms that you 


• Your paper must be between 750 to 1000 words (not including references). Your paper

should be double-spaced with one-inch margins, using 12 point Times New Roman font. 

No cover page is required. 

• You are not allowed to include any quotes in your paper. All of your writing must be 

original. You must paraphrase ideas from the literature, even if you provide an in-text 


• Information and ideas that are paraphrased must be accompanied by proper in-text 

citations in the body of your paper and a corresponding reference in APA format.
