Including data or statistics in a project can often strengthen your research and help place your information and writing in context. Your BIOL 2060 research-based assignments may ask you to incorporate statistical information, like mortality rates. Consider checking the following sources to find:
Based out of Oxford University, Our World in Data's reports include charts, tables, and maps which you can search and limit by time frame. Search for reports or browse under "health" topics.

Funded by the NIH, PATRIC is an "information system designed to support the biomedical research community’s work on bacterial infectious diseases via integration of vital pathogen information." Browse bacteria or search for bacterial pathogens to find a wide range of data, including overviews, genomes, and phylogeny.
From the Leibniz Institute, the Bacterial Diversity Metadatabase "is the worldwide largest database for standardized bacterial phenotypic information." Find data on bacterial and archaeal strains, which includes taxonomy, cultivation conditions, isolation technique, and more.
