Lab report writing tips

Sample lab reports from previous classes  – note: these are from 2 years ago before we started doing genome sequencing so identifications are based only upon 16S rRNA sequences  and genome analyses are missing. Also, note that these are not necessarily perfect papers but were of good quality and can serve as general examples of how to approach this assignment.

Selected chapters from “Writing Science” book by Joshua Schimel (please excuse the low-quality scans)
