Biology -- The First Year: Home

A research guide to help Summer Session Students with their infectious disease project.

Tips for Success


  1. Be sure that you know how to spell your disease correctly.  It will be an important "search term."
  2. Know alternative names/spellings for your disease.
  3. This assignment does not require a thesis; your assignment provides the details of your task.
  4. Start Early. Proper research takes time.  The better your research, the easier writing the paper will be.
