Roesler, William J.; Dreaver-Charles, Kristine – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2018
Successful learning of biochemistry requires students to engage with the material. In the past this often involved students writing out pathways by hand, and more recently directing students to online resources such as videos, songs, and animated slide presentations. However, even these latter resources do not really provide students an…

Pedwell, Rhianna K.; Fraser, James A.; Wang, Jack T. H.; Clegg, Jack K.; Chartres, Jy D.; Rowland, Susan L. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2018
Course-integrated Undergraduate Research Experiences (CUREs) involve large numbers of students in real research. We describe a late-year microbiology CURE in which students use yeast to address a research question around beer brewing or synthesizing biofuel; the interdisciplinary student-designed project incorporates genetics, bioinformatics,…

Stourman, Nina; Moore, Jennifer – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2018
Lactase is the enzyme responsible for the digestion of the disaccharide lactose, and deficiency in this enzyme causes the prevalent medical condition lactose intolerance. Management of lactose intolerance can be achieved through the administration of lactase supplements. Lactase is an appropriate platform for advanced enzymatic study because its…

Deutch, Charles E. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2018
Laboratory reports written in the style of a standard scientific article are commonly used to assess student learning in biochemistry laboratory courses. While most students can complete the Materials and Methods or Results sections successfully, many have difficulty with the Introduction and Discussion. They fail to place their data in a larger…

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…

Xu, Xiaoqian; Allen, William; Miao, Ziwei; Yao, Jiang; Sha, Lei; Chen, Yuhua – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2018
Biochemistry and molecular techniques are used for the development of the scientific practice of students. To improve both the teaching and learning quality and promote the students' motivation, this article outlines an interactive "Virtual Simulation and Actual Operation Combined" approach by using a tailored virtual practice-learning…

Sehgal, Nitasha; Sylves, M. Eileen; Sahoo, Ansuman; Chow, Jacky; Walker, Sarah E.; Cullen, Paul J.; Berry, James O. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2018
Clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPR) are a revolutionary tool based on a bacterial acquired immune response system. CRISPR has gained widespread use for gene editing in a variety of organisms and is an increasingly valuable tool for basic genetic research, with far-reaching implications for medicine, agriculture, and…

Wisch, Julie K.; Farrell, Emma; Siegel, Marcelle; Freyermuth, Sharyn – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2018
Conceptual understanding and reasoning of nonscience major students enrolled in a course on biotechnology were evaluated before and after instruction. The instrument for analysis of student understanding was the Biotechnology Instrument for Knowledge Elicitation (BIKE). The BIKE targets 11 key concepts, as determined by experts in the field. 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…

Marshall, Jill A.; Durán, Pablo – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2018
Several major organizations have recommended revisions to mathematics requirements for biology majors. To determine whether these changes would benefit future biologists, we investigated mathematics use in research biology. We surveyed prominent journals in high and low math-use areas for articles referencing the use of quantitative methods. In…

Makovec, Tomaž – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2018
Understanding diamagnetism of oxygenated and paramagnetism of deoxygenated hemoglobin, an important topic in (bio) chemistry for medical students, begins with the understanding of the detailed structure of the oxygen molecule. It continues with a short description of the structures of reactive oxygen species: the singlet form of oxygen, the…

Ealy, Julie B. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2018
An assessment was developed using entries from the macromolecular Crystallographic Information File that was given to students in an upper level bioinformatics class at the end of the semester during a 2½ hour time period. Although all students completed the same questions, they were assessed on an individual protein they had worked on during the…

Nam, Sang-Chul – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2018
Traditional developmental biology laboratory classes have utilized a number of different model organisms to allow students to be exposed to diverse biological phenomena in developing organisms. This traditional approach has mainly focused on the diverse morphological and anatomical descriptions of the developing organisms. However, modern…

Anwar, Yunita Arian Sani; Senam, Senam; Laksono, Endang W. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2018
We have developed an OD3R method that can be applied on Biochemistry learning. This OD3R consists of 5 phases: orientation, decision, do, discuss, and reflect to connect lessons in the class with practice in the laboratory. Implementation of OD3R method was done in 2 universities in Yogyakarta to increase critical thinking skill and practical…
