Marchioretto, Mira K.; Horton, Jacqueline T.; Berstler, Calvin A.; Humphries, Joseph B.; Koloditch, Isaac J.; Voss, Samuel D.; de La Harpe, Kimberly; Hicks, Barry W.; Jefferies, Latisha R. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2018
Förster resonance energy transfer (FRET) is the basis for many techniques used in biomedical research. Due to its wide use in molecular sensing, FRET is commonly introduced in many biology, chemistry, and physics courses. While FRET is of great importance in the biophysical sciences, the complexity and difficulty of constructing FRET experiments…

Pennington, Britney O.; Sears, Duane; Clegg, Dennis O. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2014
We developed an interactive exercise to teach students how to draw the structures of the 20 standard amino acids and to identify the one-letter abbreviations by modifying the familiar game of "Hangman." Amino acid structures were used to represent single letters throughout the game. To provide additional practice in identifying…

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…

Grimes, Catherine Leimkuhler; White, Harold B., III – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2015
There are barriers to adoption of research-based teaching methods. Professional development workshops may inform faculty of these methods, but effective adoption often does not follow. In addition, newly-minted research-active faculty are often overwhelmed by the many new responsibilities (grant writing, group management, laboratory setup,…

Militello, Kevin T.; Reinhardt, Josephine A. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2019
Next generation sequencing has revolutionized molecular biology and has provided a mechanism for rapid DNA and RNA sequence analysis. Yet, there are few resources to introduce next generation sequencing into the undergraduate biochemistry and molecular biology curriculum. Herein, we describe the design, execution, and assessment of a four-week…

Loertscher, Jennifer – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2010
In recent years, major drivers of undergraduate science education reform including the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) have called on college and university instructors to take a more scientific approach to their teaching. Although many biochemistry instructors are gaining confidence in using…

Harle, Marissa; Towns, Marcy H. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2012
Research on external representations in biochemistry has uncovered student difficulties in comprehending and interpreting external representations. This project focuses on students' understanding of three external representations of the potassium ion channel protein. This is part I of a two-part study, which focuses on the affordances and…

Garrett, Teresa A.; Osmundson, Joseph; Isaacson, Marisa; Herrera, Jennifer – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2015
In traditional introductory biochemistry laboratory classes students learn techniques for protein purification and analysis by following provided, established, step-by-step procedures. Students are exposed to a variety of biochemical techniques but are often not developing procedures or collecting new, original data. In this laboratory module,…

Kappler, Ulrike; Rowland, Susan L.; Pedwell, Rhianna K. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2017
Systems biology is frequently taught with an emphasis on mathematical modeling approaches. This focus effectively excludes most biology, biochemistry, and molecular biology students, who are not mathematics majors. The mathematical focus can also present a misleading picture of systems biology, which is a multi-disciplinary pursuit requiring…

MacDonald, Gina – Journal of Chemical Education, 2008
This report describes a biochemistry laboratory that is completely project-oriented. Upper-level biology and chemistry majors work in teams to purify a protein of their choice. After the student groups have completed literature searches, ordered reagents, and made buffers they continue to learn basic protein purification and biochemical techniques…
