Anithasri, Anbalagan – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2020
Hormones are the major signaling molecules that have a complex signaling cascade involving intracellular and intranuclear receptors, coreceptors, and signal transduction pathways. The molecular mechanism of hormonal action is written in a poetic verse to kindle the interest of students and to augment their affinity toward the onerous yet awesome…

Childers, Gina; Wolfe, Kim; Dupree, Alan; Young, Sheila; Caver, Jessica; Quintanilla, Ruby; Thornton, Laura – Science Teacher, 2016
Project-based learning (PBL) takes student engagement to a higher level through reflective collaboration, inquiry, critical thinking, problem solving, and personal relevance. This article explains how six high school teachers developed an interconnected, interdisciplinary STEM-focused PBL called "Sculpting the Barnyard Gene Pool." The…

Bargiela, Ariadna; Artero, Ruben – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2021
Laboratory practical sessions are critical to scientific training in biology but usually fail to promote logical and hypothesis-driven reasoning and rely heavily on the teacher's instructions. This paper describes a 2-day laboratory practicum in which students prepare and analyze larval cuticle preparations of "Drosophila" segmentation…

Anreiter, Ina; Sokolowski, H. Moriah; Sokolowski, Marla B. – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2018
Individuals of the same species display remarkable variation in behavior, even in identical contexts. Increasing complexity in behavioral phenotypes brings with it an increase in individual variation in the manifestation of those phenotypes, and human behavior undoubtedly stands at the pinnacle of complexity. In this article, we discuss current…

Heineman, Richard H. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2018
These three biology songs can be used for educational purposes to teach about biochemical concepts. They touch on three different topics: (1) cancer progression and germ cells, (2) gene expression, promoters, and repressors, and (3) electronegativity and the biochemical basis of photosynthesis.

Özdemir, Banuçiçek – Journal of Baltic Science Education, 2021
This research was performed to determine the Common Metaphorical Perceptions of Prospective Teachers on DNA-Gene-Chromosome Concepts, despite classroom levels and university differences. For the baseline group studies, two State Universities, one from the east and the other from the north of Turkey, were selected to be studied in the Fall Semester…

Haagsman, Marjolein E.; Koster, Margot C.; Boonstra, Johannes; Scager, Karin – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2021
Lab activities are characteristic of life science education. In the current study, we investigate whether pre-lab modules can improve students' understanding of the theories and experimental procedures associated with lab activities. Such effects were studied in context of an expository lab on gene mapping in biology undergraduate education. An…

Caplan, Barbara; Blacher, Jan; Eisenhower, Abbey; Baker, Bruce L.; Lee, Steve S. – Grantee Submission, 2021
Emerging research suggests that caregiving environments and genetic variants independently contribute to social functioning in children with typical development or autism spectrum disorder (ASD). However, biologically plausible interactive models and complimentary assessment of mechanisms are needed to: (1) explain considerable social…

Mierdel, Julia; Bogner, Franz X. – Research in Science Education, 2021
Genetics is known to be one of the most challenging subjects in biology education because of its abstract concepts and processes. Therefore, hands-on experiments in authentic learning environments are supposed to increase comprehensibility and provide otherwise unavailable experiences to students. We applied a hands-on module in an out-of-school…

Matthews, Lucas J.; Lebowitz, Matthew S.; Ottman, Ruth; Appelbaum, Paul S. – Social Psychology of Education: An International Journal, 2021
Polygenic scores for educational attainment and related variables, such as IQ and "mathematical ability" are now readily available via direct-to-consumer genetic testing companies. Some researchers are even proposing the use of genetic tests in educational settings via "precision education," in which individualized student…

Militello, Kevin T.; Chang, Ming-Mei; Simon, Robert D.; Lazatin, Justine C. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2016
The ability of students to understand the relationship between genotype and phenotype, and the mechanisms by which genotypes and phenotypes can change is essential for students studying genetics. To this end, we have developed a four-week laboratory called Blue Genes, which is designed to help novice students discriminate between two mechanisms by…

Abel, Emily A.; Schwichtenberg, A. J.; Mannin, Olivia R.; Marceau, Kristine – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2020
Sleep disorders (SD) are common in autism spectrum disorder (ASD), yet relatively little is known about the potential genetic mechanisms involved in SD and ASD comorbidity. The current study begins to fill this gap with a gene enrichment study that (1) identifies risk genes that contribute to both SD and ASD which implicate circadian entrainment,…

Goin-Kochel, Robin P.; Trinh, Sandy; Barber, Shelley; Bernier, Raphael – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2017
Approximately one-third of children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) reportedly lose skills within the first 3 years, yet a causal mechanism remains elusive. Considering evidence of strong genetic effects for ASD and findings that distinct phenotypes in ASD associate with specific genetic events, we examined rates of parent-reported regression…

Keller, Alexandra; Smith, David; Harrop, Brenda; Lamit, Louis; Schroer, Melanie; Wymore, Adam; Ueckert, Catherine – Science Scope, 2012
Almost all living organisms, including plants, fungi, insects, and humans, have DNA. Variation in DNA, or genetic variation, is responsible for most of the diversity one sees in nature. By analyzing DNA, it is possible to create a DNA fingerprint that is unique to an organism. DNA fingerprinting is used in several disciplines of science, including…

Brown, Geoffrey L.; Kogan, Steven M.; Cho, Junhan – Developmental Psychology, 2020
Father involvement contributes uniquely to children's developmental outcomes. The antecedents of father involvement among unmarried, African American fathers from rural areas, however, have been largely overlooked. The present study tested a conceptual model linking retrospective reports of childhood trauma and early adulthood social instability…
