SDS Biology Proposal

My focus question is: What common genes do professional football players possess? I’m hoping to learn really if football players are born or bred. Or maybe if they are both. This is going to be a hard project.. I can tell already it will be difficult, but I think it’d be really interesting to know this information since I’m interested in football.

I’m going to do a ton of research into the common genetics of football players and compare it to a  regular person. I don’t think I could get ahold of any football player’s DNA without a ton of struggle so I don’t think I can do that. I could also look at common disabilities after retirement like CTE.

In our course, we are learning about genetics and evolution. This would relate to the genetics part of our course significantly. This could tell me how genetics breed great players. Or it could disprove that theory.

I’m doing an infographic online. And all I need is a computer and access to the internet.
