Writer's Web


This is a general guide for writing most basic biology laboratory reports. The format may vary depending on the class and the teacher, so it is important to check with the professor when there are any questions. A very good reference is the book Writing in Biology by Jan A. Pechenik, and page numbers referring to each of the five sections of a laboratory report are given. For details on writing a particular section, click on the appropriate link.
