Differentiating Biochemistry Course Laboratories Based on Student Experience
Jakubowski, Henry V.
Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, v39 n3 p216-218 May-Jun 2011
Content and emphases in undergraduate biochemistry courses can be readily tailored to accommodate the standards of the department in which they are housed, as well as the backgrounds of the students in the courses. A more challenging issue is how to construct laboratory experiences for a class with both chemistry majors, who usually have little or no experience with biochemical techniques and biology and biochemistry majors who do. This manuscript describes a strategy for differentiating biochemistry labs to meet the needs of students with differing backgrounds.
