There are many resources available from the University of Waterloo that can support finding information for your Biology 130 Lab Report. Connect to these resources and learn how to use them from the library’s course guide for Biology 130 Lab Report.

You are also encourage to contact your Biology Librarian, laura.bredahl@uwaterloo.ca, or ask in-person at Research Help desks in any of our libraries.

 

SEARCH STRATEGIES

  1. Try variations on test names: For example for Biuret’s Test try: biuret reaction; biuret’s test; biuret’s reagent; biuret’s method.   Phrase –search “biuret’s method” “biuret reaction”     singular/possessive : biuret or biuret’s

  2. Searching PubMed MeSH will give a focused result list. Note the links on right side of a record.

  3. Locate the original method paper in Scopus or Web of Science and check the cited references for newer work. 1900/ 1940’s

  4. Tests used are colorimetric (based on changes in colour). Students could look up the pros/cons of colorimetric tests for identification.
