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…

Halmo, Stephanie M.; Sensibaugh, Cheryl A.; Bhatia, Kush S.; Howell, Alexandra; Ferryanto, Ersta P.; Choe, Bryant; Kehoe, Kaitlin; Watson, Morgan; Lemons, Paula P. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2018
Protein structure-function is a key concept in biochemistry. We used the perspective of domain-specific problem-solving to investigate students' solutions to a well-defined protein structure-function problem. We conducted think-aloud interviews with 13 undergraduate students and performed qualitative content analysis to examine the differences in…

González, Andrés; Fillat, María F. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2018
Recombinant protein expression and site-directed mutagenesis of target genes have demonstrated an increasing importance in the fields of molecular biology, biochemistry, biotechnology, and medicine. By using the flavodoxin of the model cyanobacterium "Anabaena" sp. PCC 7120 as a laboratory tool, we designed a comprehensive laboratory…

Marchioretto, Mira K.; Horton, Jacqueline T.; Berstler, Calvin A.; Humphries, Joseph B.; Koloditch, Isaac J.; Voss, Samuel D.; de La Harpe, Kimberly; Hicks, Barry W.; Jefferies, Latisha R. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2018
Förster resonance energy transfer (FRET) is the basis for many techniques used in biomedical research. Due to its wide use in molecular sensing, FRET is commonly introduced in many biology, chemistry, and physics courses. While FRET is of great importance in the biophysical sciences, the complexity and difficulty of constructing FRET experiments…

Florjanczyk, Ursula; Ng, Derek P.; Andreopoulos, Stavroula; Jenkinson, Jodie – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2018
The mathematical models that describe enzyme kinetics are invaluable predictive tools in numerous scientific fields. However, the daunting mathematical language used to describe kinetic behavior can be confusing for life science students; they often struggle to conceptualize and relate the mathematical representations to the molecular phenomena…

Irby, Stefan M.; Pelaez, Nancy J.; Anderson, Trevor R. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2018
Several course-based undergraduate research experiences (CUREs) have been published in the literature. However, only limited attempts have been made to rigorously identify the discovery-type research abilities that students actually develop during such experiences. Instead, there has been a greater focus on technical or procedural-type knowledge…

Dries, Daniel R.; Dean, Diane M.; Listenberger, Laura L.; Novak, Walter R. P.; Franzen, Margaret A.; Craig, Paul A. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2017
A thorough understanding of the molecular biosciences requires the ability to visualize and manipulate molecules in order to interpret results or to generate hypotheses. While many instructors in biochemistry and molecular biology use visual representations, few indicate that they explicitly teach visual literacy. One reason is the need for a list…

Fernandes, Lynette B. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2017
Responsible conduct in learning and research (RCLR) was progressively introduced into the pharmacology curriculum for undergraduate science students at The University of Western Australia. In the second year of this undergraduate curriculum, a lecture introduces students to issues such as the use of animals in teaching and responsible conduct of…

Almeida, Maria Strecht; Quintanilha, Alexandre – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2017
We explore the integration of societal issues in undergraduate training within the life sciences. Skills in thinking about science, scientific knowledge production and the place of science in society are crucial in the context of the idea of responsible research and innovation. This idea became institutionalized and it is currently well-present in…

Lam, Wendy W. T.; Siu, Shirley W. I. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2017
Viewing and manipulating three-dimensional (3D) structures in molecular graphics software are essential tasks for researchers and students to understand the functions of molecules. Currently, the way to manipulate a 3D molecular object is mainly based on mouse-and-keyboard control that is usually difficult and tedious to learn. While gesture-based…
