Cridland, Caitlin; Drape, Tiffany; Marine, Sasha; Gillaspy, Glenda – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2021
Like many institutions around the world, the COVID-19 pandemic prompted us to shift our summer 2020 in-person undergraduate experiential learning program to a remote, virtual format. Here, we present our observations, summarized in 10 best practices, for moving a STEM-focused research experience for undergraduates, experiential learning program or…

Shen, Jian; Chen, Chang – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2021
Compared to aerobic catabolism, the theories and experiments of anaerobic catabolism are not covered in depth in biochemistry education curricula. Anaerobic digestion (AD) is a feasible method for converting common organic compounds to renewable energy-methane that has drawn a great deal of attention in practical applications. In this study, we…

Hsu, Jeremy L.; Rowland-Goldsmith, Melissa – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2021
The transition to online learning in spring 2020 was abrupt for both students and instructors. While many instructors moved to asynchronous classes, some institutions relied more heavily on synchronous online courses. Here, we evaluate student perceptions of an inquiry-based molecular biology lecture and lab course following this transition by…

Jeon, Ah-Jung; Kellogg, David; Khan, Mohammad Asif; Tucker-Kellogg, Greg – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2021
Laboratory pedagogy is moving away from step-by-step instructions and toward inquiry-based learning, but only now developing methods for integrating inquiry-based writing (IBW) practices into the laboratory course. Based on an earlier proposal (Science 2011;332:919), we designed and implemented an IBW sequence in a university bioinformatics…

Brandt, Gabriel S.; Novak, Walter R. P. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2021
Colleges and universities are learning to provide relevant virtual lab experiences for students due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Even schools attempting in-person instruction often need to utilize virtual experiences for students absent due to quarantine or illness. Much of biochemistry is amenable to molecular visualization and/or computational…

Gerber Hornink, Gabriel; Costa, Manuel João – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2021
Learning metabolic pathways is vital for understanding biochemical processes and all of their implications for life. Their learning in the virtual environment is complex and generative learning strategies, such as the construction of online conceptual maps, can help in this process. This article presents a proposal for the collaborative…

Delgado, Tracie; Bhark, Shun-Je; Donahue, Joshua – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2021
The year 2020 will forever be remembered as a season of pandemic teaching due to rising COVID-19 infections. Institutions of higher learning abruptly changed from in-person to online in attempts to minimize COVID-19 spread. Due to this, we created and taught online cell biology labs in response to the COVID-19 campus shutdown. Our virtual cell…

Tapprich, William E.; Reichart, Letitia; Simon, Dawn M.; Duncan, Garry; McClung, William; Grandgenett, Neal; Pauley, Mark A. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2021
The lack of an instructional definition of bioinformatics delays its effective integration into biology coursework. Using an iterative process, our team of biologists, a mathematician/computer scientist, and a bioinformatician together with an educational evaluation and assessment specialist, developed an instructional definition of the…

Sulzinski, Michael A. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2021
A novel approach is described using primary literature manuscripts for the final examination of an upper level undergraduate course in virology. This innovative technique was applied as an alternative to a core comprehensive final examination. A recent primary literature paper in virology was assigned several weeks before the end of the semester.…

Roche Allred, Zahilyn D.; Farias, Anthony J.; Kararo, Alex T.; Parent, Kristin N.; Matz, Rebecca L.; Underwood, Sonia M. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2021
Students tend to think of their science courses as isolated and unrelated to each other, making it difficult for them to see connections across disciplines. In addition, many existing science assessments target rote memorization and algorithmic problem-solving skills. Here, we describe the development, implementation, and evaluation of an activity…

Mutch-Jones, Karen; Sengupta, Namrata; Minor, V. Christine; Goudsouzian, Lara K. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2021
Undergraduate biology laboratories emphasize hands-on skills. Typically, descriptions of manual techniques are delivered via written instruction. Custom-produced prelab instructional videos, which augment prelab instruction, have come into wider use in recent years. However, institutional and economic barriers can interfere with video production…

Khong, Mei Li; Tanner, Julian A. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2021
Examinations present an intensely focused opportunity for student learning yet opportunities for collaboration, communication, and feedbacks are often wasted. Two-stage examinations where students first take examinations individually and then repeat the examination in small groups hold promise to address this issue. Here, we pilot and evaluate a…

Terrell, Cassidy R.; Nickodem, Kyle; Bates, Alison; Kersten, Cassandra; Mernitz, Heather – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2021
Introductory biochemistry courses are often challenging for students because they require the integration of chemistry, biology, physics, math, and physiology knowledge and frameworks to understand and apply a large body of knowledge. This can be complicated by students' persistent misconceptions of fundamental concepts and lack of fluency with…

Srivastava, Anveshna; Srivastava, Nisheeth; Chandrasekharan, Sanjay – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2021
Concept-maps are widely used to assess students' conceptual understanding in different subject areas. Conventionally, it is mostly built maps which are assessed. In this study, we explore if "concept-mapping" could be used as a case for constructive alignment of both the process and the outcome of learning. Specifically, we have studied…

Pieczynski, Jay N.; Kee, Hooi Lynn – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2021
CRISPR-cas technology is being incorporated into undergraduate biology curriculum through lab experiences to immerse students in modern technology that is rapidly changing the landscape of science, medicine and agriculture. We developed and implemented an educational module that introduces students to CRISPR-cas technology in a Genetic course and…
