McDonough, Janet; Goudsouzian, Lara K.; Papaj, Agllai; Maceli, Ashley R.; Klepac-Ceraj, Vanja; Peterson, Celeste N. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2017
Course-based undergraduate research experiences (CUREs) have been shown to increase student retention and learning in the biological sciences. Most CURES cover only one aspect of gene regulation, such as transcriptional control. Here we present a new inquiry-based lab that engages understanding of gene expression from multiple perspectives.…

Resendes, Karen K. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2015
Incorporating scientific literacy into inquiry driven research is one of the most effective mechanisms for developing an undergraduate student's strength in writing. Additionally, discovery-based laboratories help develop students who approach science as critical thinkers. Thus, a three-week laboratory module for an introductory cell and molecular…

Sulzinski, Michael A.; Wasilewski, Melissa A.; Farrell, James C.; Glick, David L. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2009
It is an extraordinary challenge to offer an undergraduate laboratory course in virology that teaches hands-on, relevant molecular biology techniques using nonpathogenic models of human virus detection. To our knowledge, there exists no inexpensive kits or reagent sets that are appropriate for demonstrating real-time PCR (RT-PCR) in an…
