Nordqvist, Ola; Aronsson, Henrik – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2019
This manuscript presents a scoping review of Biotechnology Education Research (BTER) over the last 20 years. BTER during this period primarily focused on attitudes and knowledge, typically using research design methods suitable for addressing questions about frequencies, central tendencies, correlations, and so on. However, to guide the…

do Nascimento, Agatha Santos; de Oliveira, Felipe Sales; Bianconi, M. Lucia – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2019
The bibliometric analysis of the Brazilian periodical "Journal of Biochemistry Education" (JBE) covered the 117 articles published in 15 volumes in the period 2001-2017. Our results showed a positive trend in JBE publications with a significant increase in the number of articles since 2014, which can be related to the increase in…

Wilding, Craig – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2018
The teaching of quantitative genetic variation in the undergraduate laboratory practical environment can be difficult as, for quantitative phenotypes that are under the control of multiple loci, detection of phenotypic differences caused by individual variants is problematical without large samples, impractical in such classes. Pet dogs provide a…

Luo, Anling; Zheng, Youli; Chen, Xinxin; Cong, Fengsong – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2018
Laboratory exercises focused on protein quantification are frequently conducted in traditional undergraduate biochemistry laboratory curriculum. The laboratory course described here is designed to provide students with experience in measurement of protein content in milk powder by moving reaction boundary titration (MRBT), a new rapid technique…

Newman, Dina L.; Stefkovich, Megan; Clasen, Catherine; Franzen, Margaret A.; Wright, L. Kate – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2018
The essence of molecular biology education lies in understanding of gene expression, with subtopics including the central dogma processes, such as transcription and translation. While these concepts are core to the discipline, they are also notoriously difficult for students to learn, probably because they cannot be directly observed. While nearly…

Flurkey, William H.; Inlow, Jennifer K. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2017
An inexpensive enzyme kinetics laboratory exercise for undergraduate biochemistry students is described utilizing tyrosinase from white button mushrooms. The exercise can be completed in one or two three-hour lab sessions. The optimal amounts of enzyme, substrate (catechol), and inhibitor (kojic acid) are first determined, and then kinetic data is…

Pedwell, Rhianna K.; Hardy, James A.; Rowland, Susan L. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2017
Evidence shows that science graduates often do not have the communication skills they need to meet workplace standards and expectations. One common mode of science communication is the poster. In a review of the literature we show that poster design is historically problematic, and that the guidance provided to students as they create posters for…

Kappler, Ulrike; Rowland, Susan L.; Pedwell, Rhianna K. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2017
Systems biology is frequently taught with an emphasis on mathematical modeling approaches. This focus effectively excludes most biology, biochemistry, and molecular biology students, who are not mathematics majors. The mathematical focus can also present a misleading picture of systems biology, which is a multi-disciplinary pursuit requiring…

Stasinakis, Panagiotis K.; Nicolaou, Despoina – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2017
The molecular structure of living organisms and the complex interactions amongst its components are the basis for the diversity observed at the macroscopic level. Proteins and nucleic acids are some of the major molecular components, and play a key role in several biological functions, such as those of development and evolution. This article…

Oelkers, Peter M. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2017
A single semester molecular biology laboratory has been developed in which students design and execute a project examining transcriptional regulation in "Saccharomyces cerevisiae." Three weeks of planning are allocated to developing a hypothesis through literature searches and use of bioinformatics. Common experimental plans address a…

Jakubowski, Henry; Xie, Jianping; Kumar Mitra, Arup; Ghooi, Ravindra; Hosseinkhani, Saman; Alipour, Mohsen; Hajipour, Behnam; Obiero, George – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2017
The profound advances in the biomolecular sciences over the last decades have enabled similar advances in biomedicine. These advances have increasingly challenged our abilities to deploy them in an equitable and ethically acceptable manner. As such, it has become necessary and important to teach biomedical and scientific ethics to our students who…

Miller, Kathryn; Kim, Thomas – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2017
This study investigates the role of representational competence in student responses to an assessment of hydrogen bonding. The assessment couples the use of a multiple-select item ("Choose all that apply") with an open-ended item to allow for an examination of students' cognitive processes as they relate to the assignment of hydrogen…

Wiles, Amy M. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2016
Learning often improves when active learning techniques are used in place of traditional lectures. For many of these techniques, however, students are expected to apply concepts that they have already grasped. A challenge, therefore, is how to incorporate active learning into the classroom of courses with heavy content, such as molecular-based…

Cook, Anthony L.; Snow, Elizabeth T.; Binns, Henrica; Cook, Peta S. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2015
Inquiry-based learning (IBL) activities are complementary to the processes of laboratory discovery, as both are focused on producing new findings through research and inquiry. Here, we describe the results of student surveys taken pre- and postpractical to an IBL undergraduate practical on PCR. Our analysis focuses primarily student perceptions of…

Pontrello, Jason K. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2015
Benefits of incorporating research experiences into laboratory courses have been well documented, yet examples of research projects designed for the first semester introductory organic chemistry lab course are extremely rare. To address this deficiency, a Carbohydrate-Based human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) Inhibitor project consisting of a…
