BIOLOGY 152: Introductory Biology: IP-Finding Research Articles and Databases (Spring 2024) : Background Information

Finding Background Information

Finding background information is a good way of gaining general understanding of a complex topic, as well as understanding the scientific terminology.

You will be writing papers on a specific aspect of an organ system or species. Before you dive into that specific literature you should have an understanding of the basic function of your organ system or an overall knowledge of the species about which you will be writing.

These resources will help you find that general information.
