Enzyme rates and kinetics are key components used by biochemists to understand how enzymes function. However, students often find it difficult to understand how these experiments are performed and...
What do Bone and Silly Putty® have in Common?: A Lesson on Bone Viscoelasticity
By John M Redden1, Anastasios V Tzingounis2, Geoffrey R. Tanner*2
1. University of Connecticut 2. University of Connecticut & Connecticut Institute for the Brain and Cognitive Sciences (IBaCS)
Without the use of real-life examples and models, actively instructing and engaging students in complex physiology topics related to bone biomechanics can be challenging. In our large-enrollment...
A Short Bone Biomechanics Primer: Background for a Lesson on Bone Viscoelasticity
By John M. Redden1, Anastasios V. Tzingounis2, Geoffrey R. Tanner*2
1. University of Connecticut 2. University of Connecticut and the Connecticut Institute for Brain and Cognitive Sciences (IBaCS)
The skeletal system is the first of the body systems that we discuss in-depth in our Physiology & Anatomy courses (PNB 2264/2265 and PNB 2274/2275) in the Department of Physiology and...
CRISPR Gene Editing: Designing the gRNA and Donor Template
15 Jul 2020 | Teaching Materials | Contributor(s):
By Laurel Lorenz
In this adaptation, students learn how CRISPR/Cas9 is used in bacterial immunity and gene editing. Students create both a gRNA target and a donor template to edit a gene. Mutations can be from the...
