Can’t find articles on your topic?

It’s important to remember that the chances of finding an article that’s an exact match for your laboratory activities are slim to none -- for example, most researchers will not be writing about swabbing their own cheeks for samples. Instead, it’s up to you to tell the story. You will find articles that talk about parts of your research, and your task is to pick out what’s relevant and weave it all together. If you’re having trouble, ask a librarian for help.
