Yeast Lab Report Guidelines
1. Lab reports are to be computer-generated and double-spaced. All sections of the report must be written in paragraph form.
2. Do not use encyclopedias (Internet or otherwise), dictionaries ((Internet or otherwise), or personal web pages as sources for the report, this includes Wikipedia. You may use a textbook, lab manual, and/or article(s) in a published journal.
You can find journal articles by going to the library website: http://www.lib.clemson.edu/ and selecting “Find Articles”, then choose the letter B, and then the database BIOSIS or BioOne, or choose the letter P and use PubMed (or if you have a database you would rather use, please feel free). If you are off campus when you do this, you will need to log into the system. Once you are there use key words to search for articles that will help you write your introduction; you should be more specific than just using the word “yeast”. 3. Everything that you write must be your own. Do not plagiarize any work; do not collaborate with other students to write any portion of the report or to construct graphs or tables, as this will constitute violation of the academic integrity policy. Note that the maximum penalty for violating the academic integrity policy is a zero for the course. 4. The report is due at the beginning of Lab 11 (Cell Reproduction), during the week of 11/10- 11/14. There will be a 5-point late penalty assessed if the report is not submitted at the beginning of lab. Further, there will be a 5-point penalty assessed for each day the report is late. The report is worth 25 points. E-mailed or faxed reports will not be accepted. You must have a paper copy of the report when you come to lab.
5. The report should be based solely on yeast cell viability at different glucose concentrations. 6. The report should include the following: title, abstract, introduction, methods & materials, results, and discussion.
7. The report format should be similar to that presented...
