Ensayo rise

  1. 1. Reflection: Seminar in Scientific LiteratureWhen the topic is science, writing becomes a meticulous process.During fall semester theexperience was accompanied with the knowledge of doctoral students and lots of primaryarticles. While trying to learn how to become writers, several steps were taught: writingannotated bibliographies and a review paper. All of these documents have several details thatshould be included, like references. Learning all of them was an enriched experience full of trialsand errors.Every month different students visited the lecture to discuss a primary article. Thevisitors and their work were the following: Olga González “Herpesviral Reactivation: A KeyStep for Disease Development.”, Jessica Torres “Incorporation of Unnatural Amino Acids for theExpressions of Proteins with new Function” and Yadilette Rivera “Against all Odds: ProteinCrystallography and Graduate School.” Each one of them had different topics and vocabulary.Sometimes it was hard to understand the project at all, but thanks to the discussion at “TheJournal Club” everything ended being so comprehensible and interesting and the same time.Having the opportunity to ask them about graduate school gave more intrigue to acquire a Ph.D.When it gets the time to learn how to write an Annotated Bibliography, to domain theCouncil of Science Editors is a challenge. But before that, we received a seminar of how to lookfor the right articles using the college databases. After learning the essential details, threeannotated bibliographies were made referring to a specific topic of your interest. My topic wasThrombotic Thrombocytopenic Purpura. I learned that the best way to know the true it’s bysearching and reading peer reviewed articles.After reading several primary articles I learned possible causes for ThromboticThrombocytopenic Purpura. It was a rewarding process. The information of revised Literatureswas presented in a forum full of emotion after finishing a literature investigation.Even though writing about science can seem difficult, having a revised literature isessential in any research. Learning all the process involved with it was such a great tool thatshould be included in every scientific work. This class will remain until graduate school.
