Daina, Antoine; Blatter, Marie-Claude; Gerritsen, Vivienne Baillie; Palagi, Patricia M.; Marek, Diana; Xenarios, Ioannis; Schwede, Torsten; Michielin, Olivier; Zoete, Vincent – Journal of Chemical Education, 2017
Due to its impact on society, the design of new drugs has the potential to interest a wide audience, and provides a rare opportunity to introduce several concepts in chemistry and biochemistry. Drug design can be seen as a multiobjective cyclic optimization process. Indeed, it is important to develop the understanding not only that a drug is…

Saderholm, Matthew; Reynolds, Anthony – Journal of Chemical Education, 2011
We developed a protein research project for a one-semester biochemistry lecture class to enhance learning and more effectively train students to understand protein structure and function. During this semester-long process, students select a protein with known structure and then research its structure, sequence, and function. This project…

Evans, Michael J.; Moore, Jeffrey S. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2011
In recent years, postsecondary instructors have recognized the potential of wikis to transform the way students learn in a collaborative environment. However, few instructors have embraced in-depth student use of chemistry software for the creation of interactive chemistry content on the Web. Using currently available software, students are able…
