Bowman, Larry L., Jr.; Culhane, Kelly J.; Park, Ahrume J.; Kucera, Kaury – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2020
Graduate student and postdoctoral teaching assistants receive highly variable preparation for instructional methods because providing such training is often expensive. Therefore, we conducted an intensive, pedagogical boot camp followed by classroom observations, structured professional development discussions about leveraging the experience on…

Zhang, Jinyong; Jing, Haiming; Luo, Ping; Zhang, Xiaoli; Zou, Quanming – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2020
Biotechnological pharmaceuticals is a key course offered to third-year undergraduates majoring in biotechnology in our university. However, students often experience difficulties in understanding the principles of related technologies. In this study, we developed and implemented an elective course on preliminary structural biology for…

Wu, Chun; McCune, Tyler S. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2020
An approach for incorporating preliminary drug discovery research into a biochemistry laboratory is described. During a total of 42 hr (one 3-hr laboratory section a week for 14 weeks), students were exposed to bioinformatics; molecular cloning; protein expression, purification, and characterization; and enzymatic kinetic assays. This…

Fendos, Justin – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2020
As a global phenomenon, the spread of evidence-based teaching (EBT) in STEM education has been very uneven. Outside of the United States, parts of Europe, and Oceania, EBT awareness is generally regarded as being extremely low. In the United States, programs like the Summer Institutes (SI) have been used to help disseminate awareness and train…

Liu, Yin; Huang, Mei; Zhou, Yujie; Cai, Hourong – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2020
The standardized residency training in China is continuous medical education for postgraduates, which is designed to master basic knowledge, theory, and clinical skills. Case-based discussion (CBD) is one of the main formative curricula used in standardized residency training. The aim of this study was to assess the impact of a novel CBD…

Gatherer, Derek – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2020
Bioinformatics is an essential discipline for biologists. It also has a reputation of being difficult for those without a strong quantitative and computer science background. At Lancaster University, we have developed modules for the integration of bioinformatics skills training into our undergraduate biology degree portfolio. This article…

Hernandez-Matias, Liz; Pérez-Donato, Lizmar; Román, Pablo Llerandi; Laureano-Torres, Faviola; Calzada-Jorge, Natalia; Mendoza, Stephanie; Washington, A. Valance; Borrero, Michelle – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2020
Although multiple efforts have been initiated to increase students' science proficiency scores, most of the schools in the United States do not reach the expected student academic performance. This study addresses the impact of a one-week summer scientific learning experience on students that worked with experimental procedures and students that…

Tueller, Josie A.; Whitley, Kiara V.; Weber, K. Scott – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2020
Flow cytometry is a versatile and high throughput technique for rapid and efficient biological testing. It requires a high level of conceptual, technical, and analytical skills to properly design experiments, effectively operate flow cytometry machines, and analyze the data. A lack of training and development of any of these three skills can…

Chen, Stefanie H.; Goller, Carlos C. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2020
Proteins must interact with a variety of other cellular components to properly perform their functions. We have developed a series of five experiments based on the robust bacterial single-stranded DNA binding protein (SSB) to characterize both known and unknown protein-protein and protein-DNA interactions. Students work in groups to generate and…

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…

Li, LiXin; Tian, Wei; Zhang, Jie – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2020
In this article, we describe an in-house polymerase chain reaction-sequence specific priming (PCR-SSP) assay designed for undergraduate medical students as part of the experimental pathogen biology and immunology (EPBI) course. It screens human leukocyte antigen (HLA)-DR2 allotype from genomic DNA samples using a rapid and single-tube PCR…

Taylor, Ann T. S. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2020
One of the goals for requiring all college students to take science courses is to develop critical thinking about scientific issues they will encounter as citizens, consumers, and patients. This article integrates skill development activities targeting civic scientific literacy skills in a nonscience majors (liberal arts) biochemistry course, but…

Anwar, Yunita Arian Sani – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2020
Biochemistry learning in higher education not only aims to allow students to remember the concepts learned, but also to achieve meaningful learning. This study examines the implementation of the multilevel inquiry approach in order to achieve meaningful biochemistry learning. Such as approach begins with a structured inquiry, leading to a guided…

Panzarasa, Guido – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2020
Easy and visually appealing demonstrations are precious tools for introducing students to the study of enzymes. However, they most often involve purified enzymes and dedicated techniques. Here, we propose a set of demonstrations, which require only fresh horseradish root and consumer chemicals, to help support biochemistry and enzymology courses…
