Microbiology and agriculture

Project Part 1: Background You are the science reporter for your local newspaper. Your editor asks you to write an article on a major topic within the general field of microbiology. He stipulates that in this article you need to include the following three things:
1. An historical timeline for the major scientific discoveries that has led to our current understanding of the topic.
2. A summary of our current understanding of the topic.
3. A projection of where the next major advance or breakthrough in your topic will come from.
Description For project 1 you will do your background research. Specifically, you will choose a suitable topic, identify appropriate resources, and generate a brief outline of the article which you will write for Project 2.
Microbiology and agriculture is the topic.
Procedure: Consult your textbook to choose a topic under one of the four subheadings listed above. For example, from the area Microbiology and industry, you might examine the use of organisms by the alcoholic beverage industry. More specifically, are you interested in wine and the grapes that produce it? You could investigate the actions of a fungus called “noble rot” or the cultures involved in the fermentation of the grapes.  [Need help choosing a topic?]
1. First, do some background research on your topic to get more familiar with it.  Using the Credo Reference and/or Britannica Online: Academic Edition databases, find 1-2 articles/encyclopedia entries on your topic that will help you complete your Project 2 article.  You can access these databases from the Library’s Background Information page.
2. Now that you have some grounding in your topic, find 5-6 peer-reviewed research articles that will help you complete your Project 2 article using the Library’s OneSearch tool.  OneSearch is found on the Library’s homepage.  Watch the OneSearch Tips video for assistance getting started.  [Note: In OneSearch you can limit your results to peer-reviewed journals.]
3. You should now have a total of at least 7 sources to use for your Project 2 article.
4. After reading the sources, think of the main points that you will cover and develop an outline for your Project 2 article. [Need help writing an outline?]
5. In a single Word document, submit your outline and list of at least 7 sources (references) in APA format and place it in the appropriate assignment dropbox. ]

Description Using the topic, outline and resources that you developed for Project 1, write a 2,000 word article for your newspaper following your editor’s instructions. Your article should not just quote the research articles you have consulted, but convert them into language that is understood by non-scientists without losing the meaning.
Procedure
· Submit your project in one WORD document and place it in the appropriate assignment dropbox.
· Please format your article according to APA style. Your article should have a cover page, abstract, and reference page. These pages do not count towards the length specified (2000 words).
· Please number each page, including the cover page and provide a running head.
