Find a recently published (ideally less than one year old) research article that deals with one of the topics from this unit. The article should be published in a peer-reviewed journal. Rather than Google, use the ARC article database search engine to search the journals. The ARC database, and instructions for usage can be found here:

com/discovery/search?vid=01CACCL_LRCCD:arc” rel=”noreferrer noopener” target=”_blank”> (Links to an external site.)

You will then write a one page (250-500 word) report on the article that must include the following:

A summary of the research reported in the article including the general research performed, organisms used, and general methodology.

A summary, in your words, of how the research in the article connects to the topics covered in class. For example, how did understanding the basic concepts of class help to understand what was done in the article.
