9. Writing: Intro, conclusion, and citations
Write the final draft. Add a one-paragraph introduction and a one-paragraph conclusion. Usually the thesis statement appears as the last sentence or two of the first, introductory paragraph. Make sure all citations appear in the correct format for the style (MLA, APA) you are using. The conclusion should not simply restate your thesis, but should refer to it. (For more on writing conclusions, see the TIP Sheet "How to Structure an Essay.") Add a Works Cited (for MLA) or Bibliography (for APA) page.
The government is currently involved in regulating the production of synthetic DNA products that may be used to generate dangerous compounds (., infectious diseases, toxins, etc.) and federal law requires adequate security in connection to some types of health information.

However, we intend to analyze the law and policy ramifications of this work in partnership with the UW Tech Policy Lab and encourage regulators to consider this area moving into the future.
