COMMERCIAL ENZYME PRODUCTION
Format for the “Hot Topic” Biochemistry Paper (50 pts)
- Minimum 5 pages including 3-5 supporting scientific references. Suggested format for references:
Smith, L. and Jones, J. (2010) “Serine proteases and thrombosis”, Biochemistry Review 22, pp308-318.
- The paper may include figures, pathways, molecules, and graphics as needed. Single-spaced and no larger than 12 or 13 sized fonts.
- A good topic will easily fill the space! The manuscript will contain your observation/conclusions and well as molecular/cellular concepts. Send me your proposed topic(s) ASAP, and I’ll give feedback.
- The paper is due on FRIDAY. Submit it as a PDF via the Assignment/HotTopic Paper Submission Button on the page.
