There are TWO parts.
Part 1 does not require a formal lab report. Just give your answers and the results of the cross. For part 2, a type
written lab report is needed. Use the handout to help you put together your report. You MUST have a cover page.
All details are in the uploaded pdf file. Please read it carefully and follow it exactly as required.
Refer to the handout provided as Principles of DNA Lab (1).
Lab report format:
Scientific laboratory reports or any other APA style paper written at a collegiate
level have a standard format.
The following are standard for APA papers:
1 inch margins on all sides
12-point font and the font style should be either Arial, or Times Roman
Some type of Header (Running Head:)
Numbered pages except the Title Page
Paragraphs indented 1-tab space
DOUBLE-SPACED throughout the paper including Title Page and Reference Page.
Scientific laboratory reports have a separate Title Page and a separate Reference page.scientific reports have HEADINGS
on each section of the report.
These headings are:
The first page of the lab report is the TITLE page. Do NOT number the Title page unless instructed to do so.
The title of the lab report should NOT be too general but should reflect more specifically about the experiment. For example: “Fingerprinting” is too general for the title but instead, use something like: “Fingerprinting as an Effective Forensic Tool in Solving Murders.” The title should be informative; it should not be “cute.” A Running head is needed as a Header on all pages including the title page.
The Running Head should appear as Running Head: SHORT TITLE OF PAPER IN ALL CAPS (but not in bold).
