What exactly does this mean? I have a paper due in Biology, where I had to read a research paper on Clathrin Coated Vesicles and answer some questions. Well that was kind of easy, until I got to the end and it asked "How do the findings in this paper contribute to the scientific body of knowledge?" And I am confused as to what the professor is asking me. My first reaction is just to put down whatever the paper proved, but some how that seems wrong and I feel like this is a trick question. Anyone know what that sentence means?
