Due Date: Monday December 2, 2013 at 11:59:59pm
To have students
generate a BIF project proposal that will incorporate a
definition of their project, diagrams to help describe how they will
implement their project, and an appendix showing their online
meeetings for supporting documentation.
You are required to
produce a project proposal for your BIF project that is expected to
be completed in your second term. You will build on the report that
your group members created in your Google Doc in Assignment #2.
In addition to submitting your project proposal to your BIF713 instructor,
you are required to submit your project proposal to your Bioinformatics professor.
NOTE:Make certain to discuss with your Bioinformatics professor their Google Docs name (e-mail), and make certain to add their e-mail address, and give them permissions to view the Google Document.
Your project proposal
should have the following elements:
Titlepage, indicating project name,
group members, Course code, date and instructor's name.
Paragraph describing the scope and
purpose of your project.
Contact information of individuals
that are providing information for you to complete this BIF713
Diagrams describing your project, and how you will plan the project.
NOTE: At least 2 of the following 3 listed diagrams related to your project which could include the following:
An Organizational Chart of the company or organization that you are participating with to complete your Project (System). Note: if you are not certain whether an organizational chart applies to your project, notify your BIF713 instructor immediately!
A “level 0” (or general-level) Data-Flow-Diagram (DFD) which will describe the Data Flow of your Bioinformatics project. Note: you are permitted to then provide a more detailed DFD (i.e. lower-levels) which contain more processing steps. Although you are not required to provide extreme detail, the more you provide at this time, the quicker you can proceed with your work.
A System Flowchart, providing processes (including logic and loops) that describes (step-by-step) the Inputs, Processes, Storage and Outputs of your Project. You should not provide a System Flowchart without first creating a DFD.
NOTE: You will be required to produce a Gantt chart will which will display how the various stages (phases) of your project will proceed, and how much time is dedicated to each phase, and how each phase relates to each other over the remaining project period.
documentation from the “online” meetings which were generated to
This documentation can be included in an Appendix at the end of your project proposal
Only 1 group member is required to submit the project proposal for evaluation.
