Staphylococcus aureus (Staph) Research Paper
- Brief history–when was it discovered as a causative agent, who discovered it, past outbreaks or trends?
- Morphology–what is the shape of the pathogen? If it a bacterium, is it gram positive or negative?
- Environmental conditions required for growthâ€”at what temperature, oxygen level, UV exposure level, etc. can it survive?
- Catabolismâ€”is it aerobic or anaerobic? Does it go through ED or PPP pathways? If you have a virus assigned, please describe the catabolism of the cells it infects.
There should be no quotes in the paper, and I’ll be using the Turn-It-In software to check for plagiarism. I fully expect that all your sources may show up as plagiarized, and I will ignore that overlap. Please be sure to cite your sources within your paper, and to finish with a citation section in APA format. For clarification, I’m only looking for the sources in APA at the end of your paper, I don’t expect you to write in the format of a lab report. Also, the in-text citations can either be presented as a footnote, a number in parenthesis, or the author’s last name and date (this is the preferred method). In-text citations should occur after any information you’ve pulled from a source.
