For your Bio 100 paper you'll want to focus on scholarly, peer-reviewed articles. Down syndrome is a fairly large topic, so you'll probably want to narrow it down. You could focus on a particular physical condition associated with down syndrome or the preferences of down syndrome kids and adolescents in communicating, socializing, or interacting with others.
A good place to start is Academic Search Premier, where you can do a quick search with the phrase "down syndrome" and limit results to "full text" and "scholarly, peer-reviewed journals". To access this and other databases with scientific journals go here: http://library.tctc.edu/science.
Other databases you will want to try include JSTOR, Science in Context on our Science Databases page and the ProQuest Medical Sciences database located on our health and medicine page: http://library.tctc.edu/Health
You might also go to a special page we have set up for Bio 101 Research Paper at this link http://library.tctc.edu/c.php?g=463186#s-lg-box-9759690. Many of the sources can be used for both Bio 100 and Bio 101.
