Research tools for the Organism Paper Individual Project

Assignment Skills

The purpose of this assignment is to learn how to conduct a library research while you learn about a specific organism. You will gain knowledge about the differences in literature sources and compare the kinds of information found in each type of resource.

Once you have done your research on the literature, you will build an e-poster and present on your organism.

Organism Name

Look up some information about your organism. Is there a lot out there or do we know very little? If we know very little, are you going to be able to get all the resources you need? You can change your organism if needed.

Please state here the organism you plan to do your project on. I'm doing it as a discussion, only because I want to make sure you look at other people's post before you submit yours. Two people can't pick the same thing.

Be specific: Bee doesn't work. Pick a species, not a 'group' of organism.

It doesn't have to be an animal: it can be any living organism. Just make sure you can find enough information on it.
