Phadtare, Sangita; Abali, Emine; Brodsky, Barbara – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2013
For successful delivery of basic science topics for health-professional students, it is critical to reduce apprehension and illustrate relevance to clinical settings and everyday life. At the beginning of the Biochemistry course for Physician Assistants, a team-based assignment was designed to develop an understanding of the mechanism of action,…

Hearn, R. P.; Arblaster, K. E. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2010
DNA extraction provides a hands-on introduction to DNA and enables students to gain real life experience and practical knowledge of DNA. Students gain a sense of ownership and are more enthusiastic when they use their own DNA. A cost effective, simple protocol for DNA extraction and visualization was devised. Buccal mucosal epithelia provide a…

Phornphisutthimas, Somkiat; Panijpan, Bhinyo; Wood, Edward J.; Booth, Andrew G. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2007
To support student learning in biochemistry and related courses, a simulation program, the Protein Purification Program, offers an alternative multimedia-based tool. This program has now been translated to produce a Thai version. However, translation from the original into the Thai language is limited by the differences between the language…

Jervis, Les; Jervis, Loretta M.; Giovannelli, Donato – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2005
Undergraduate degree programs in the biosciences almost always include elements of biochemistry. In the United Kingdom, biosciences programs often have optional pathways to accommodate students of diverse interests. These programs rarely require students to demonstrate any school-level chemistry knowledge, and many students find biochemistry…

Hack, Catherine; Kendall, Gary – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2005
It is widely predicted that the application of high-throughput technologies to the quantification and identification of biological molecules will cause a paradigm shift in the life sciences. However, if the biosciences are to evolve from a predominantly descriptive discipline to an information science, practitioners will require enhanced skills in…
