To help you become an accomplished writer, you will prepare several research papers based upon the studies completed in lab.
Our research papers are not typical "lab reports." In a teaching lab a lab report might be nothing more than answers to a set of questions.
Include the name(s) and address(es) of all authors, and date submitted. An abstract is a concise single paragraph summary of completed work or work in progress.
"Biology lab #1" would not be an informative title, for example. In a minute or less a reader can learn the rationale behind the study, general approach to the problem, pertinent results, and important conclusions or new questions.
For Biosciences majors the general guidelines apply to future course work, as can be seen by examining the guidelines for the advanced experimental sciences research paper (Bioc 311).
An objective of organizing a research paper is to allow people to read your work selectively.People will want to read this material selectively.The reader may only be interested in one formula or part of a procedure.You alone are responsible for developing such skills to a high level.Before you begin your first writing assignment, please consult all of the following resources, in order to gain the most benefit from the experience.Economy of words is important throughout any paper, but especially in an abstract.However, use complete sentences and do not sacrifice readability for brevity.The writer can now go directly to summarizing the results.Summarize the study, including the following elements in any abstract.Materials and methods may be reported under separate subheadings or can be incorporated together.This should be the easiest section to write, but many students misunderstand the purpose.
