Prof. Eiden - Principles of Biological Science SPRING 2023: Home

Welcome!

Welcome! This research guide was created for students in Dr. Eiden's Principles of Biological Science (Lecture 101) class.

This guide is a customized resource for this assignment.

You are to read the scientific literature and summarize in your own words the main point of an article or the goal of a research project. Explore media and analyze the validity of a claim using the scientific method. 

Citing your sources correctly is an essential component of any research assignment. If you have any questions about research and citations, please get in touch with me at rebecca.steere@sunywcc.edu. For real-time assistance, use the live IM box from the library homepage.
