Writing a paper

You'd think writing a biology paper about a disease my own daughter has would be fairly easy, right?

Wrong.

It's so complicated when you look at the entire disease as a whole, and not just the small category she falls into.

My brain could explode!

How extensive does the paper need to be?  Could you focus on the category your daughter falls into?

It has to be at least 6 pages, 10+ sources. She falls into the most minor category with not much info, so I'm doing the 3 most common subtypes, including hers. And although they're "all the same", there's so many little things that are different. And since it's a biology paper, it has to be more biology specific, genes, germs, etc, and that's the overwhelming part.

That's  not so terrible. I remember 25 page papers, and yeah, the sourcing is a PITA. 

I love all that kind of stuff you're talking about there though, but you're right, many variables. It's amazing that the same basic materials, on subatomic, atomic then molecular levels moving in to the bigger picture of the living organism as a whole, along with the varying combonation of nucleotides in sequencing, can be put together in so many different ways to create such varying life forms and then so many different sub categories of the different life forms and on and on, and that's only what we see here on our little planet alone. Interesting stuff indeed!

Enjoy your research material, and enjoy the brief rest when it's over:) I'm sure you will organize and manage things well and hand in a good paper.

Good luck with the research and the writing. I've always found the former to be much easier than the latter.

I'm good with researching and writing, it's the piecing it all together that gets me. I think too hard. ;)
