Ebola Outbreak in West Africa Highlights Antiviral Research Process
The current Ebola crisis in West Africa has already topped charts for all Ebola outbreaks in history, and no Ebola-specific antiviral currently exists. Medical biotechnology science projects let students get hands-on with the kinds of bioinformatics tools scientists are using, right now, as they face the ongoing Ebola health crisis.

Building a Solid Bibliography
Tracking and Citing Your Sources
Doing background research is an important part of a science project, but keeping track of those sources is also very important. Your bibliography should include all of the sources you consult during your project. You can find key information and a handy checklist
for preparing your bibliography in the Science Buddies Project Guide
Citing Science BuddiesIf you use a Science Buddies resource or project idea, you will need to include Science Buddies in your bibliography. Did you know that all project ideas contain citation information on the Summary tab in a section called Cite This Page? Take a look at this project to see a sample!
For information regarding citing other pages and resources from Science Buddies, see our FAQ.
