The goal is a compact, non-wordy, scientific summary, not a long paper. Points will be taken off for significant deviations from the format.
PubMed is searchable at the site and returns abstracts. For hits labeled “Free paper” you get access to the full paper, which is nice. For the PubMed section of your paper, choose 1 or 2 papers or abstracts to discuss (your search in PubMed will probably return many hits). Inevitably, these papers will cover a very narrow topic in great depth. For your paper, it is OK for the PubMed topic to cover a small piece of the main paper topic as long as it relates to biochemistry and is interesting.
