Choose a recent article from the news media (e.g., Fox News, BBC, Washington Post, LA Times) that covers a recent scientific study (e.g., “Microbiome study could change the way doctors diagnose depression”, “Link between Alzheimer’s disease and gut microbiota is confirmed”) and fact check the article by reading the primary literature cited in the news article. The original news media MUST mention a published study and you must read this study. The final paper should introduce the study, the societal context in which this news article made an impact (e.g., at the beginning of COVID-19 outbreak, a time when depression rates were increasing, etc.), and the conclusions of the study and article. The paper MUST involve a microbe or microbiome. Paper should be 2-3 pages long, single-spaced, with references to all sources.
