Strawberry DNA lab report

  1. 1. Strawberry DNA Extraction<br />Lab report guidelines<br />
  2. 2. Your lab report should include…<br />Scientific Title<br />Introduction<br />Methods & Materials<br />Results<br />Discussion<br />Conclusion<br />Literature Cited/Biolography<br />
  3. 3. Title<br />The organism studied<br />The parameter changed<br />What was measured<br />
  4. 4. Introduction<br />In your introduction, include the following information:<br />Where is DNA found in a cell.<br />A detailed description of the structure of DNA. <br />The function of DNA<br />The hypothesis for the experiment using the enzyme.<br />
  5. 5. Methods & Materials<br />Write your procedure in a paragraph, do not use numbered steps.<br />When it comes time to give instructions for the three options of additions, after the extraction buffer, then and only then can you use numbered steps. For example: After the extraction buffer was added, there were three variations of the experiment: a) no additional substances were added; b) 5mL of enzymes were added; c) 5mL of water was added.<br />
  6. 6. Results<br />Since we NEVER put raw data in a lab report, your results section will be very short. A few sentences stating the averages of the first experiment (4 samples) and the averages of the second experiment will be sufficient.<br />
  7. 7. Discussion<br />This will be the bulk of your lab report.<br />You should include: <br />Patterns<br />Things that were unexpected<br />Sources of error<br /><ul><li>In addition, answer these questions: How would you redesign this experiment? What additional things do you need to control?</li></li></ul><li>Conclusion<br />Restate your hypothesis<br />Did you find support for your hypothesis.<br />
  8. 8. Bibliography <br />You need to include at least one source, other than class notes in your introduction.<br />You can NOT just say “wikipedia.”<br />You need to write the entire url and the date that you visited the webpage.<br />
  9. 9. Formatting your lab report<br />Your name and the date should be at the top of the first page.<br />Headings (introduction etc) should be centered<br />Please use 1.5 spacing, this will make it easier for me to write comments. <br />
