Before you begin making your Genetic Disorder Wiki, please watch the video on creating Wikis.

















For your first Wiki Project you will have the opportunity to develop your own wiki space. Teams will select a genetic disorder that afflicts humans and build a
small web site (wiki) as a reference for the genetic disorder you have selected.

  • Please see the following list of genetic disorders by following the link below.
  • Your team should edit the genetic disorder page and write your names next to the disorder you have selected.
  • If you do not see a disorder you would like to research, write it at the bottom of the list and I will approve it or suggest alternatives.
