Emery, Patrick; Yezierski, Ellen J.; Page, Richard C. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2019
Visualizations are useful tools for helping students to understand chemistry concepts at the particulate level. A classroom activity was developed based on learning theory and evidence-based practices, combining protein visualization with thermodynamic parameters from differential scanning fluorimetry (DSF) data analysis. Coding of student…

Abreu, Paula Alvarez; Carvalho, Karina de Lima; Rabelo, Vitor Won-Held; Castro, Helena Carla – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2019
Computational techniques have great potential to improve the teaching-learning. In this work, we used a computational strategy to visualize three-dimensional (3D) structures of proteins and DNA and help the student to comprehend biochemistry concepts such as protein structure and function, substrate, and inhibitors as well as DNA structural…

Peppino Margutti, Micaela; Reyna, Matias; Villasuso, Ana L. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2019
The concepts of phospholipase activity is often taught in undergraduate biology and biochemistry classes and reinforced in laboratory exercises. However, very rarely does the design of these exercises allow students to directly gain experience in the use of modern instruments such as digital imaging systems and fluorescence spectrophotometers. The…

Miquet, Johanna G.; González, Lorena; Sotelo, Ana I.; González Lebrero, Rodolfo M. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2019
Enzyme kinetics is an essential topic in undergraduate Biochemistry courses. A laboratory work that covers the principal basic concepts of enzyme kinetics in steady state is presented. The alkaline phosphatase catalyzed reaction of phenyl-phosphate hydrolysis was studied as a model. The laboratory experience was designed to reinforce the concepts…

Gardner, Grant E.; Parrish, Jennifer – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2019
Biology graduate teaching assistants (GTAs) are a critical instructional group in the successful implementation of classroom reform efforts in higher education. Despite this, little is known about effective Teaching Professional Development (TPD) of this largely novice instructor group. This Idea to explore article proposes that a comparison of…

Das, Saswati; Nandi, Kajal; Baruah, Priyanki; Sarkar, Sajib K.; Goswami, Binita; Koner, Bidhan C. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2019
Team based learning (TBL) is a time tested teaching-learning (T-L) tool involving collaborative learning but has hardly been tested for teaching clinical biochemistry to undergraduate medical students. The present study was designed to (a) compare problem solving skills of first year MBBS students after attending a TBL session on 'organ function…

Kim, Alice M.; Speed, Caroline J.; Macaulay, Janet O. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2019
The traditional teaching style in higher education is didactic. However, the current literature states that student learning improves when they are active players in the process, triggering the move to implement active learning within the curriculum. In accordance, Monash University (an Australian research-intensive university) introduced the…

Huang, Qiangru; Yue, Zhihao; Lin, Junqing; Zhang, Yangyi; Yuan, Shuang; Zhuang, Quan; Peng, Cheng – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2019
Undergraduate research (UR) refers to a series of scientific research activities for undergraduates. For the past few years in China, medical colleges and universities have increasingly attached importance on UR, aiming to provide undergraduates with better scientific research conditions, improve their understanding about scientific research and…

Garcia-Bonete, Maria-Jose; Jensen, Maja; Katona, Gergely – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2019
Although virtual and augmented reality (VR and AR) techniques have been used extensively in specialized laboratories, only recently did they become affordable, reaching wider consumer markets. With increased availability, it is timely to examine the roles that VR and AR may play in teaching structural biology and in experiencing complex data sets…

Ochs, Raymond – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2019
Understanding redox reactions in biochemistry requires a clear grasp of three definitions: electron exchange, oxidation number, and oxygen atom insertion. Here, the electrochemical cell is explained for redox-active ions, introducing a new comparison between the measurement of midpoint potential and the measurement of initial velocity for enzymes.…

Reich, Norbert; Wang, Yuedong – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2019
We investigate the effectiveness of an active learning curriculum designed for an upper division Biochemistry series at a large, public research university. The goal was to determine how effective this format was when compared to a parallel conventional course, and to see if the active learning series can be run with limited resources (one…

Cicuto, Camila; Pazinato, Maurícius; Torres, Bayardo – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2019
Scientific articles have been explored as a didactic resource in the teaching of Biochemistry, as well as in other areas of science. This teaching strategy contributes to the learning and understanding of specific concepts, and development of the skills, necessary for the research training of students. The present study investigated the use of…

Clark, Daniel D. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2019
A homologous pair of stereospecific NAD-dependent enzymes, (R)- and (S)-hydroxypropyl-coenzyme M dehydrogenase, are part of a bacterial pathway of short-chain alkene and epoxide metabolism. Their discovery and study, which spans multiple publications over more than a decade, is a data rich story that combines both classical and contemporary…

Açikgül Firat, Esra; Köksal, Mustafa S. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2019
In this study, a 'biotechnology literacy test' was developed to determine the biotechnology literacy of prospective science teachers, and its validity and reliability were determined. For this purpose, 42 items were prepared by considering Bybee's scientific literacy classifications (nominal, functional, procedural, and multidimensional). The…

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…
