How do doctoral students in RES 7700 perceive and understand their experiences with education and educative processes?

This will be a written assignment for my doctoral qualitative research class.
For this particular assignment, respond to the following topic:
For this assignment you will code narrative data to answer a research question: “How do doctoral students in RES 7700 perceive and understand their experiences with education and educative processes?” Narratives were submitted in Week 1 which you will work to code. The coding scheme that you will develop must lead you to answering this specific research question.You will be reading and ‘makingsense’ out of these narratives through the lens of ‘what can these narratives tell you about the research question? ’Another way to this about this is that you will be interrogating the narratives with this research question. Also, you must use Word or Excel to code the transcriipts and create the Code Book. You can use highlighting, color-coding, annotation, comment function, tables, etc. If you do your coding by hand on paper with pencil, you will need to transfer this into a Word file. You will be asked to include the coded transcriipts to the final paper. The report must include:
* A research question.
* The transcriipts with the coding process (i.e., original text unitized; category codes; sorting of 
the categories into themes, and possibly relationships between themes).
* The coding scheme: explanation of your codes.
* Summary of your findings: What did you learn so far about your research question? Work to connect your claims here to the language in the narratives.
* MEMO A: An explanation of how you moved from your codes to your findings and your 
coding process.
* MEMO B: What do you think about coding? Where do you see gaps in your data? How does what you learned inform your thinking about your interview/observation data?
* A list of references that back up all in-text citations. Be sure to use APA.
For your reference, I am a healthy, white 34-year old female from Kentucky. I am extremely active and spend a lot of time working out and eating healthy food. Also, I am a college professor in the Exercise Science department and own an online fitness and nutrition coaching business.
I have attached a copy of the assignment details, as well as the narrative transcriipt that will be used for this assignment. There are also 2 examples provided of how the coding should be completed and put into words. Also, I have attached the book chapters and recommended resources to elaborate on the course material discussed during this section.

What is CRISPR?

In 1986, a PhD student in Japan discovered a strange set of sequences of nucleotides in an E. coli gene. 5 sequences of DNA were identical to each other and interspaced between normal-looking sequences. Not long after, these “regularly spaced repeats and spacers” were found in 20 different bacteria and archaea. Then, in 2001, the name, CRISPR, standing for “clustered regularly interspaced palindromic repeats” was coined. It was also discovered that these organisms that had CRISPRs also were flanked by a gene(s) which encoded for making an enzyme(s). These enzymes are known as CRISPR-associated or Cas enzymes. Scientists now know that this system in bacteria and archae is their “immune system.” The spacer segments matched those of viruses that had attacked that bacteria. Ultimately, with work done by many scientists the CRISPR-Cas 9 enzyme was found that it could be used as a very powerful tool for gene-editing because it could be programed to cut both strands of a section of DNA, potentially chopping out a gene and a new piece of DNA could be inserted where the cut was made. So….the question is “What do we allow or not allow with this type of biotechnology?”
Can you think of any situations in which gene editing could or should be used for humans? Should we allow the use of CRISPR gene editing to remove harmful genes? Should we allow the use of CRISPR gene editing to add beneficial genes or allow parents to select the traits of their children? Should we allow CRISPR gene editing to enhance plant crops? What about developing vaccines against specific viral infections such as SARS-CoV-2? A recent article discussed the possibility of using gene editing to be able to prevent blindness in premature infants. See if you can find any examples of additional ways in which gene editing could be beneficial OR is that an area that science should completely ban in any and all applications?
After viewing the Youtube video What is CRISPR?, post your 300 word comments about the use of CRISPR gene editing tools. Be sure to reply to two other students.

What are the health hazards associated with the operation?

Instructions:
You have been tasked with identifying health hazards associated with a production line at a manufacturing facility.
Employees at the beginning of the line use a solvent to clean the surface of medium-size auto parts, and then they place the parts on a moving line. As the parts move along the line, an employee sprays them with a powder coating, and the parts move through an oven. Another employee removes the parts from the line and places them in slots in a cart for transporting to shipping.
You have been provided safety data sheets for the solvent used for cleaning the parts and the powder coating that is used. Use the Basic Job Hazard Analysis form to identify the potential health hazards associated with the process. You will use the Basic Job Hazard Analysis form to enter your responses and to answer the four questions listed below. Please upload this completed document to your instructor for grading.
Prepare a two-page homework assignment summarizing your health hazard analysis and answer these questions from the Basic Job Hazard Analysis form.
What are the health hazards associated with the operation?
What are the primary exposure routes associated with each health hazard?
