Microsome Lab Report Instructions

This formal lab report has the following sections, all written in paragraph form:
Purpose/Introduction:What is the experiment. What are you measuring? Why are you measuring it, how are you measuring it. What is/are your controls? Explain your experimental design and the reason why this experiment is interesting. What reactions are involved? What new knowledge will be obtained?
Procedure: What did you do? Write this in the first person. Explain what you did and why you did it. Include the details for the solutions, the experiment, the control and the standard curve.
Data and Results: This section has your data in neat tables and/or graphs with an explanation for each table or graph. Make sure everything is labeled. This section also has clear, concise sample calculations for each different type of calculation. Be sure to include the standard curve. Show how you used the standard curve to determine the molarity of the drug in each sample. Make a plot of Molarity of drug vs Time. This is a first order reaction, so make a plot of Ln(M) vs time, to get the rate constant, which you will use to get the half life. For a quick review, use this page: How to Get Half Lives from Kinetics Data Compare the control and at the experiment data, is there a statistical difference? How did you determine if there is a statistical difference?
Discussion: Report the half life of your drug. Discuss how your experimental results compared to the control(s). Was there a statistical difference between your experimental results and the control.
References: Cite references in the text. Go to the literature and find relevant primary sources. Include a complete bibliography (Authors, Title, Journal, year, vol, pages. For web pages that are not primary sources: Authors, title, source, date last updated, URL, date you accessed it.)

These reports will be graded holistically:
All sections are fully developed: nothing is missing, everything is labeled, the writing is clear, the data is clearly presented and explained. All references are cited in the text and there is a complete bibliography.
Most sections are fully developed with minor errors.
All sections are present and there may be some lack of development
Missing some sections, or some parts are barely developed
Major omissions
There is a report.
