Davisson, Sarah – ProQuest LLC, 2019
Science is an area of study that can have far reaching implications, influencing and influenced by all aspects of society including politics, ethics, and personal opinions. Science is about more than just the facts, but the process of development and the implications of science knowledge. The main objective of this thesis project is to create…

Chang, Yaning; Peng, Yuke; Li, Pengfei; Zhuang, Yingping – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2017
With the increasing importance in the application of the molecular biological detection technology in the field of food safety, strengthening education in molecular biology experimental techniques is more necessary for the culture of the students in food quality and safety major. However, molecular biology experiments are not always in curricula…

Kenney, Justin W.; Scott, Ian C.; Josselyn, Sheena A.; Frankland, Paul W. – Learning & Memory, 2017
Zebrafish are a genetically tractable vertebrate that hold considerable promise for elucidating the molecular basis of behavior. Although numerous recent advances have been made in the ability to precisely manipulate the zebrafish genome, much less is known about many aspects of learning and memory in adult fish. Here, we describe the development…

von Arnim, Albrecht G.; Missra, Anamika – CBE - Life Sciences Education, 2017
Leading voices in the biological sciences have called for a transformation in graduate education leading to the PhD degree. One area commonly singled out for growth and innovation is cross-training in computational science. In 1998, the University of Tennessee (UT) founded an intercollegiate graduate program called the UT-ORNL Graduate School of…

Isbilir, Erdinc; Cakiroglu, Jale; Ertepinar, Hamide – EURASIA Journal of Mathematics, Science & Technology Education, 2014
This study investigated the relationship between pre-service science teachers' written argumentation levels about socio-scientific issues and epistemic belief levels in an online discussion environment. A mixed-methods approach was used: 30 Turkish pre-service science teachers contributed with their written argumentations to four socio-scientific…

Objective: Although twin and family studies have shown attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) to be highly heritable, genetic variants influencing the trait at a genome-wide significant level have yet to be identified. As prior genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have not yielded significant results, we conducted a meta-analysis of…

Objective: Although twin and family studies have shown attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) to be highly heritable, genetic variants influencing the trait at a genome-wide significant level have yet to be identified. Thus additional genome-wide association studies (GWAS) are needed. Method: We used case-control analyses of 896 cases…

National Human Genome Research Institute, 2008
The National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) led the National Institutes of Health's (NIH) contribution to the International Human Genome Project, whose primary goal was the sequencing of the human genome. This project was successfully completed in April 2003. Now, the NHGRI's mission is focused on a broad range of studies aimed at…

Wilding, Craig – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2018
The teaching of quantitative genetic variation in the undergraduate laboratory practical environment can be difficult as, for quantitative phenotypes that are under the control of multiple loci, detection of phenotypic differences caused by individual variants is problematical without large samples, impractical in such classes. Pet dogs provide a…

Sehgal, Nitasha; Sylves, M. Eileen; Sahoo, Ansuman; Chow, Jacky; Walker, Sarah E.; Cullen, Paul J.; Berry, James O. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2018
Clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPR) are a revolutionary tool based on a bacterial acquired immune response system. CRISPR has gained widespread use for gene editing in a variety of organisms and is an increasingly valuable tool for basic genetic research, with far-reaching implications for medicine, agriculture, and…

Brenner, Charles – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2013
Approximately two million students matriculate into American colleges and universities per year. Almost 20% of these students begin taking a series of courses specified by advisers of health preprofessionals. The single most important influence on health profession advisers and on course selection for this huge population of learners is the…

Cohen, Todd; Feldbaum, Mindy – Community College Journal, 2012
With every student who graduates college to pursue a career in the green workforce, the case for green-collar job training at the nation's community colleges is made anew. As federal stimulus dollars wind down, community colleges are determined to maintain and expand green-focused education and job training successes. The American Association of…

Connolly, John J.; Glessner, Joseph T.; Hakonarson, Hakon – Child Development, 2013
Efforts to understand the causes of autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) have been hampered by genetic complexity and heterogeneity among individuals. One strategy for reducing complexity is to target endophenotypes, simpler biologically based measures that may involve fewer genes and constitute a more homogenous sample. A genome-wide association…
