So this has been a rough week. I have completed my first paragraph of my background and I am presently writing my second paragraph, which is focusing on what Hyaluronan and Matrix Metalloproteinases are. After that is done, which I plan to have done and posted tomorrow, I will move on to the pararaphs detailing the collection methods I will use to quantify the mRNA and protein samples. Following this, I need to get into the methods. I have yet to hear back from St. V's on the wherabouts of my binders, so I need to go over there and get them back to get my documents and important papers that will aid me in writing my methods portion of my paper. I'm looking to have the first two portions of my paper, the background and methods, completed before winter break in near final form. This will allow me to use winter break to analyze my data and write up my results section which I can hopefully have done by the beginning of January.
