Diploma assignment general recommendations

Dear colleagues,

Some of you have already come up with interesting topics for their review assignments. As you get ready to finish your review, please, do not forget to structure it as we have discussed before. I recommend a title page; a page describing virus general properties, classification, and genome organization (including gene functions); the core of the topic you are writing on; and finally, the references that you used.  Please, do not forget to cite the author of every statement or group of statements you use in your report within the text, not just at the end of the report. You can use the referencing style of the papers you are reading. Also, try using your own language instead of copying and pasting, to the best of your ability.
Best of luck. Stay safe.
