severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS)

I ma needing to get a 1000-1200 word (3 page) paper written on a specific disease. It will need to have 2 parts. The first is a 150 minimum word paragraph and then the actual paper. Please see the specifics. Thanks
 
 
Microbiology paper
Topic: severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS)
 
Part 1: Proposal
 
Write a one paragraph summary (approximately 150 words or more) on the topic you have chosen. A well-thought out proposal paragraph might even work as the introduction for your completed writing assignment.
 
Your paragraph should present a general summary of the concept to be researched. In addition, the proposal should also list at least four sources you could use in writing the final paper.
 
•             Web sources are acceptable, provided they are reputable sources and cited correctly.
 
•             Your textbook is an acceptable source.
 
•             References must be written in complete and correct APA citation format.
 
•             Annotate each reference by describing what information the source contains that you might use in your paper.
 
Part 2: Main Paper
 
BIBLIOGRAPHY/REFERENCES/Plagiarism
 
a.             Find at least FOUR sources of information regarding your organism/topic
 
b.                   Plagiarism Free Paper (Turnitin report would be good)
 
c.                   Your report must include a bibliography page written in APA citation format including the author(s) name, the publication date, the title, and publication location:publisher (or a working URL for an Internet source). Use caution when using a computer to generate references as citation programs (and some Writing Center tutors) struggle with organizations as authors (I have seen American Society for Microbiology written as Microbiology, A.S.F. and Centers for Disease Control written as Control, C.F.D.).
 
d.                   Remember that sometimes the author of something is not a single person but is an organization (CDC, FDA, OSHA, ASM, etc.). In these cases, you are to cite the organization as the author.
 
e.                  All sources must be appropriately cited in-text. Quotations of any sort are not allowed – paraphrase.
 
3.  FORMAT
 
Paper should be approximately 3-4 pages of text (minimum 1000 words), double-spaced, using a standard font and margins. Pictures, etc. that you may choose to include do not count toward the page total. The reference list does not count toward the page total. A cover sheet is NOT required. An abstract is NOT required.
 
 
 
4.   WHAT TO INCLUDE IN THE ACTUAL TEXT OF YOUR PAPER (note the outline given here provides you with an excellent outline for use in the paper
 
 
 
A.   introduction – tell what the paper is about without giving all the details
 
B.   description of the concept of emerging disease/re-emerging disease
 
1.   concept of emergence
 
2.   generally how people can contribute to emergence
 
C.  microorganisms involved/disease characteristics
 
1.   description of organism
 
a.    for living organism (classification (domain, kingdom, genus, species) OR for non-living entity (name of virus and viral family (or if it is a prion))
 
b.    physical description/identifying characteristics (size, special staining characteristic, growth characteristics, etc.)
 
c.     other pathogens in same genus/family/group causing similar diseases?
 
2.   disease
 
a.   symptoms of disease
 
b.   treatment
 
c.   long-term effects, if any
 
d.   other relevant information not covered somewhere else
 
D.  emergence of your organism/disease
 
1.   describe the emergence/re-emergence
 
a.   when was the disease first diagnosed/discovered?
 
b.   reservoirs of the organism (known, suspected, unknown?)
 
c.   transmission of organism
 
d.   is the disease emerging worldwide or in certain areas?
 
2.   evaluate the emergence/re-emergence
 
a.   what have humans done that led to the emergence/re-emergence of this particular disease (in this particular area)?
 
E.   future of topic
 
1.   what will happen? Will the disease become common? Be cyclical? Or something else? [you may guess at this with supportive statements]
 
F.   conclusion – summarize the information, complete the process
 
G.  bibliography – APA format, no annotation
 
 
 
BE SURE YOU ARE WRITING YOUR PAPER FROM THE STANDPOINT OF THE DISEASE EMERGING/RE-EMERGING AND NOT JUST AS A DESCRIPTION OF A DISEASE.
 
 
THE FOCUS OF THE PAPER SHOULD BE MORE ON THE EMERGENCE, WITH INFORMATION ABOUT THE DISEASE AND ORGANISM SUPPLEMENTING THE EMERGENCE INFORMATION.
If any aspect of the outline above is not relevant to your paper, then make a clear and obvious statement to that effect in the paper so that I know you considered the point and found that it was not possible to address the point.
