Use resources such as microbiology text books, encyclopedias, HCC Library databases (e.g. Pro Quest Biology, Pro Quest Nursing) journals and online medical sites to research these questions. Indicate the source of information you found in ACS or MLA format. Do not forget to include in-text citations every time you borrow someone’s idea, even if you paraphrased it.

Instead, paraphrase the information in the reference, and supply the citation. In the case of plagiarism, all students involved will receive a “0” on this assignment.
