TOO BROAD OR TWO NARROW?Select what you think is the best research question (neither too broad nor too narrow).A.What are the 14 different disease-causing genes that were discovered in 1994?B. What is the importance of genetic research in our lives?C. How might the discovery of a genetic basis for obesity change the way in which we treat obese persons, both medically and socially?
C-question a is far too narrow to develop into a research paper. you could answer this question in one sentence, and the question does not allow you to develop your own thoughts about the topic.question b is too broad. you could write a book to discuss the importance of genetic research in our lives. question c is the best choice. you might be asking, how can i research something whose effect hasnt yet been felt? you can logically posit what might happen in the future based on what has happened in the past. for example, your research may bring you to the major things thought to have caused obesity in the recent past (last 2-3 decades) in order to establish a direct relationship between cause and treatment. once you establish that direct cause-and-effect relationship, you can project similar types of relationships based on the new genetic research.
