Online Resource

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) is a great reliable resource for this project.  Besides using a database you can search your parasite at

MLA 8th ed. Website Citations

MLA 8th Website Format:

Last Name, First Name.  "Title of Article." Title of the Website, Publication Date, URL. Date of Access.

Sample Citation: 

"Malaria".  Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 5 Oct. 2016,  17 Nov. 2017. 

Please note:

  • no authors were noted on the website so that element was not included
  • CDC could be listed as the author, but because they are also the title of the website I choose to not put them twice
  • publication date was found at the bottom of the article
  • remove the http:\\ from the citation
