- A complete Lab Report in the form of a scientific research report on your experiment today is due at beginning of Lab 11.  Discuss your results in terms of how the factor that you chose to investigate affects the electron transport rate and the coupling of electron transport with the photophosphorylation of ADP and/or the role of the H+ gradient in these processes. Compare your results to other investigations published in the primary literature. Refer to the "[[BISC110:Guidelines for writing a lab report in the form of a scientific paper | '''Guidelines for science writing''']]" information found in the [[BISC110/F09:Resources |  Resources]] section of the wiki. + A full paper on your experiment today in the form of a scientific research report is due at beginning of Lab 11.  Discuss your results in terms of how the factor that you chose to investigate affects the electron transport rate and the coupling of electron transport with the photophosphorylation of ADP and/or the role of the H+ gradient in these processes.
