Carol is a biologist with a strong background in biotechnology, biochemistry, and mycology. In addition to writing Standard Operating Procedures for use by industry scientists,she has written proposals for scientific studies based upon primary journal articles as well as protocols with explanations of relevant theory for undergraduate biochemistry and molecular biology students.
Throughout her career, the written projects she has created have been designed to clarify complex technical information using concrete, specific language. These documents function as essential tools to the scientist preparing for experiments, collecting data or calibrating equipment.
Carol has most recently been working with fungal species and have an interest in cultivating fungus with medicinal properties as well as being useful for their culinary attributes. I chose a research review about the fungus Pleurotus pulmonarius as my writing sample.
