Throughout the protocol, there are opportunities to add information to the table. Most responses should be entered as a separate entry. There are times, however, when responses can be grouped into a single entry. If all subsequent questions can be answered the same for all items, they can be grouped together in a single entry. Let's use the Bacteria section as an example:
If you are working with multiple strains of bacterium and you can answer the rest of the questions in the Bacteria section the same way, they can be grouped in the bacteria name question. If, however, only one of the strains is administered to animals while the other is not, they should be added as separate entries.
