Biology: Synthesis Essay

This formal essay prompt was created by Dr. Cawa Tran and Dr. Kate Boersma from the Biology Department.

Dr. Tran and Dr. Boersma explain how this assignment from BIOL 490 is meant to give students the opportunity to “practice synthesizing ideas across multiple publications and developing [their] own opinion about the published literature.” The assignment should ultimately help prepare students to write a literature review.
