How to Format a Biology Lab Report
Genetics Research Paper on the Study of Genes
All site tags. Faced with an increasing number of articles describing DNA data and a need for more appropriate venues to present these data, some publishers and journals have responded by changing the structure and format of genome papers. Specifically, certain journals have started accepting very short manuscripts — words that present a new chromosome sequence, its GenBank accession number and little else. These pint-sized articles go by various names, such as genome reports, genome announcements, genome notes or genome letters , but will be referred to here broadly as genome reports. Their short length and minimal number or complete absence of figures, tables and article subheadings are a significant departure from long-form genome papers, which typically span 8—10 journal pages, contain many supporting items and have formal introduction, methods, results and discussion sections. Following are the list of journals publishing pint-sized articles go by various names, such as genome reports, genome announcements, genome notes or genome letters , but will be referred to here broadly as genome reports. Cannot include figures, tables or supplemental material to present data or analysis.
'Great Books' List
Genome Biology publishes Short Reports that are concise studies of high quality and broad interest. Short Reports can present new research findings, or can present a new method or software. For a paper to be suitable as a Short Report, the main results or description, for a method or software paper should be able to be clearly shown in a maximum of 2 figures or tables. The main text should be around words, excluding abstract, references, and figure legends, and should contain no headings.
The chapters are numbered for the pairs of human chromosomes , one pair being the X and Y sex chromosomes , so the numbering goes up to 22 with Chapter X and Y couched between Chapters 7 and 8. The book was welcomed by critics in journals such as Nature and newspapers including The New York Times. The book's author, Matt Ridley , is a British journalist and businessman, known for writing on science, the environment, and economics. The book devotes one chapter to each pair of human chromosomes.
