What is an annotated bibliography? An annotated bibliography is just like your work cited page, but more information is added. Each citation is followed by a summary (explaining what the article is about) and a statement that describes how you can use the information in your essay. Also include a sentence telling how you know the source is reliable.

Example annotated bibliography entry:
“Genetically modified organism.” Environmental Encyclopedia, edited by Deirdre S. Blanchfield, Gale, 2011. Gale In Context: Opposing Viewpoints, https://link-gale-com.portal.oaklandcc.edu/apps/doc/CV2644150611/OVIC?u=lom_oakcc&sid=OVIC&xid=ba6133d3. Accessed 7 Apr. 2020.
This article clarifies what the genetically modified organisms are, how they are engineered, the varieties of agriculture crops that can be produced, and the pharmaceutical usages of GMOs. It thoroughly explains what genetic engineering is by providing an overview about the basic units of heredity in organisms such as the DNA, RNA, proteins, and cells. Also, it states the multiple methods used for genetic engineering, but only focus on a method called Polymerase chain reaction. In addition to that, it gives a detailed list of the most agriculture crops that undergo genetic engineering such as Corn, Soybeans, and Cotton. Furthermore, this article revealed that there are benefits in using GM0s for pharmaceutical use. For example, the production of some vaccines that are used against some diseases such as hepatitis B were produced by genetically modifying a bacterium.
I can use this article in my paper as an evidence to prove that GMOs are beneficial in some ways other than food such as pharmaceutical uses. Also, it can help me in my paper to properly define and interpret GMO’s and their characteristics. Furthermore, it helps me to prove that GMO’s have many positive and beneficial aspects that people either do not know about or tend to ignore.
