INFORMATION LITERACY ASSIGNMENT
Biology 101
Fall 2020
 
Overview It is critical that you can ascertain whether biological claims that you read/hear in the popular press are backed up by high-quality, peer-reviewed literature. In this assignment, you will find a biological (diet, nutrition, health etc.) claim that interests you and then conduct a literature search to identify 2 peer-reviewed primary research papers (not reviews, magazine article, book chapters etc.) describing studies that have been done to assess the validity of the claim. You will also need to determine what type of study design was used (epidemiologic vs. intervention) for each study.
 
Epidemiologic Study: A study in which data are collected from a group of individuals who are not asked to change their behaviors in any way.
 
Intervention Study: A experiment in which something is altered or changed to determine its effect on something else. Example, letting people drink soda to see its effects on obesity.

Due Date: Dec 3th
 
 
Maximal Points: 25 points
 
 
 
If you cannot find 2 peer-reviewed research papers concerning your nutrition claim, please find another nutrition claim with which to complete this assignment. And…you can assume that the initial claim is unsubstantiated by scientific inquiry!
