Fast Answers and FAQ



Choose a topic in Evolutionary Medicine. There is a list of broad categories below, however you will need to narrow down your focus to have a manageable topic for your paper.  If you have a topic that you think would be appropriate but doesn't fit into one of the categories below, please consult your instructor!

Search for 15 recent peer-reviewed journal articles on your topic (last 10 years). Import your 15 article citations into EndNote Web (or other bibliographic management software) and create a bibliography in the citation style of the journals Evolution or Ecology.

Your submitted assignment should include two things:

1. A short (1-2 sentence) description of your chosen topic and how it incorporates evolutionary theory and medicine.

2. Your formatted bibliography of 15 recent peer-reviewed publications.

Each of these topics should be narrowed to facilitate review in your Paper Assignment. For example, "Emerging pathogens" is too broad; "The origin and evolution of the SARS virus" is more manageable.
