Abreu, Paula Alvarez; Carvalho, Karina de Lima; Rabelo, Vitor Won-Held; Castro, Helena Carla – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2019
Computational techniques have great potential to improve the teaching-learning. In this work, we used a computational strategy to visualize three-dimensional (3D) structures of proteins and DNA and help the student to comprehend biochemistry concepts such as protein structure and function, substrate, and inhibitors as well as DNA structural…

Das, Saswati; Nandi, Kajal; Baruah, Priyanki; Sarkar, Sajib K.; Goswami, Binita; Koner, Bidhan C. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2019
Team based learning (TBL) is a time tested teaching-learning (T-L) tool involving collaborative learning but has hardly been tested for teaching clinical biochemistry to undergraduate medical students. The present study was designed to (a) compare problem solving skills of first year MBBS students after attending a TBL session on 'organ function…

Kim, Alice M.; Speed, Caroline J.; Macaulay, Janet O. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2019
The traditional teaching style in higher education is didactic. However, the current literature states that student learning improves when they are active players in the process, triggering the move to implement active learning within the curriculum. In accordance, Monash University (an Australian research-intensive university) introduced the…

Reich, Norbert; Wang, Yuedong – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2019
We investigate the effectiveness of an active learning curriculum designed for an upper division Biochemistry series at a large, public research university. The goal was to determine how effective this format was when compared to a parallel conventional course, and to see if the active learning series can be run with limited resources (one…

Cicuto, Camila; Pazinato, Maurícius; Torres, Bayardo – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2019
Scientific articles have been explored as a didactic resource in the teaching of Biochemistry, as well as in other areas of science. This teaching strategy contributes to the learning and understanding of specific concepts, and development of the skills, necessary for the research training of students. The present study investigated the use of…

Dsilva, Lorna; Mittal, Shubhi; Koepnick, Brian; Flatten, Jeff; Cooper, Seth; Horowitz, Scott – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2019
The computer game Foldit is currently widely used as a biology and biochemistry teaching aid. Herein, we introduce a new feature of Foldit called "custom contests" that allows educators to create puzzles that fit their curriculum. The effectiveness of the custom contests is demonstrated by the use of five distinct custom contests in an…

Howell, Michelle E.; Booth, Christine S.; Sikich, Sharmin M.; Helikar, Tomáš; Roston, Rebecca L.; Couch, Brian A.; Dijk, Karin – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2019
Understanding the relationship between molecular structure and function represents an important goal of undergraduate life sciences. Although evidence suggests that handling physical models supports gains in student understanding of structure-function relationships, such models have not been widely implemented in biochemistry classrooms.…

de Vries, Lisbeth Elvira; May, Michael – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2019
This study presents an evaluation of virtual laboratory simulation for educational use in the "AP Degree Programme in Chemical and Biotechnical Science at University College Copenhagen" in Denmark. The purpose was to test if, and how, virtual laboratory simulation could be applied to a practically oriented education such as the education…

Shelby, Shameka J. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2019
Due to resource limitations at predominantly undergraduate institutions, research opportunities for non-senior students can be limited. To provide opportunities for a variety of students to gain exposure to research, a course-based undergraduate research experience (CURE) was designed and conducted. Coupled inquiry was used to allow underclassmen…
