Prieto, Daniel; Aparicio, Gonzalo; Sotelo-Silveira, Jose R. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2017
Cell and developmental processes are complex, and profoundly dependent on spatial relationships that change over time. Innovative educational or teaching strategies are always needed to foster deep comprehension of these processes and their dynamic features. However, laboratory exercises in cell and developmental biology at the undergraduate level…

Moorleghen, Dylan M.; Oli, Naresh; Crowe, Alison J.; Liepkalns, Justine S.; Self, Casey J.; Doherty, Jennifer H. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2019
Cell phones have long been known as a potential distraction from attention intensive activities such as studying and driving. Many, however, are developing the cell phone as a powerful tool to augment some of these same activities. Audience response systems (ARSs) are a type of teaching tool that allows educators to poll audience members in real…

Giojalas, Laura C.; Guidobaldi, Hector A.; Cragnolini, Andrea B.; Franchi, Anahi N.; Garcia Romano, Leticia; Bermudez, Gonzalo M. A.; Danelon, Victor; Moreno Irusta, Ayelen; Domínguez, Esteban M.; Figueras López, Maria J. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2021
Nowadays Molecular Cell Biology (MCB) must be taught as science is practiced. Even though there are several approaches based on scientific practices, a key aspect is to define the purpose of each of these teaching strategies and, most importantly, their implementation. Our goal was to train students to acquire, understand, and communicate new…

Goodsell, David S. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2011
Diverse biological data may be used to create illustrations of molecules in their cellular context. This report describes the scientific results that support an illustration of a eukaryotic cell, enlarged by one million times to show the distribution and arrangement of macromolecules. The panoramic cross section includes eight panels that extend…

Song, Qing; Liu, Tingting; Yang, Hua; Bai, Yun – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2019
This innovative comprehensive experiment is a compulsory course for third-year undergraduate students in the eight-year training program leading to a Doctor of Medicine degree or Doctor of Philosophy degree at Peking University Health Science Center (PKUHSC). There is a critical educational need to prepare these students for the increasing…

Jiao, Li; Xueli, Li; Xiujuan, Shi; Song, Jia; Jie, Xu; Lixia, Lv; Wenzhuo, Yang; Lei, Xu – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2019
For medical students, we combine the laboratory practice with clinical applications by developing biochemical and molecular biology experiments. In this experiment, students first collect their own buccal epithelial cells by a noninvasive mouthwash method. Then, they extract genomic DNA and perform polymerase chain reaction (PCR) to amplify…

Yan, Jianghong; Hu, Shupeng; Xu, Xiudan; Zhao, Dezhang; Wu, Mingjun; Luo, Suxin; Xia, Yong – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2018
Medical laboratory technology major was set up to meet rapid development of science and medical research technology in 2013. Students majoring in medical laboratory had learnt a lot of techniques distributed among different specialized courses. But, they did not understand why they had to learn these techniques and how they were applied in a…

Hills, Melissa; Harcombe, Kimberley; Bernstein, Nina – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2020
Anticipated learning outcomes (LOs) were defined and used for the backward design of a Course-based Undergraduate Research Experience (CURE). These LOs reflect the inquiry-based nature of CUREs and capture key knowledge and skills inherent to scientific practice and essential in research. The LOs were used to plan a formative and summative…

Primo, Emiliano D.; Otero, Lisandro H.; Ruiz, Francisco; Klinke, Sebastián; Giordano, Walter – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2018
The bacterial cell wall, a structural unit of peptidoglycan polymer comprised of glycan strands consisting of a repeating disaccharide motif [N-acetylglucosamine (NAG) and N-acetylmuramylpentapeptide (NAM pentapeptide)], encases bacteria and provides structural integrity and protection. Lysozymes are enzymes that break down the bacterial cell wall…

Guttilla Reed, Irene K. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2021
Many students in the sciences are interested in exploring research opportunities; however, the one-on-one faculty mentorship model often lacks the ability to supervise large numbers of students. An alternative mechanism for exposing undergraduate students to the research process is participation in a Course-based Undergraduate Research Experience…

Del Bianco, Cristina – Journal of Chemical Education, 2010
Teaching metabolism to a biochemistry class with diverse academic backgrounds is a challenging task. Often students lack the global perspective that is needed to understand how different metabolic pathways are reciprocally regulated. The classroom activity presented in this article is designed to facilitate the learning of metabolism by having the…

Rostejnska, Milada; Klimova, Helena – Journal of Chemical Education, 2011
"AZ-Quiz" and "Jeopardy!" are popular television shows and serve as the basis for in-class games designed to support and diversify chemistry instruction at the high school level. Both games were created in Microsoft PowerPoint, which is an easily accessible and controllable instrument that enables the creation of engaging animation. The use of…

Wall, Kathryn P.; Dillon, Rebecca; Knowles, Michelle K. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2015
Fluorescent proteins are commonly used in cell biology to assess where proteins are within a cell as a function of time and provide insight into intracellular protein function. However, the usefulness of a fluorescent protein depends directly on the quantum yield. The quantum yield relates the efficiency at which a fluorescent molecule converts…
