    A course‐based undergraduate research experience investigating p300 bromodomain mutations

    Structural organization of p300 and bromodomain mutations identified in endometrial cancers. A) Schematic of the domain organization of p300. The bromodomain (BROMO) is shown in pink. B) Table of the bromodomain mutations identified in endometrial cancers using the COSMIC database. C) Crystal structure of the p300 bromodomain showing the acetyl-lysine binding pocket. Mutated residues are highlighted in pink. [Color figure can be viewed in the online issue, which is available at wileyonlinelibrary.com.]

    Purification of a recombinant glutathione transferase from the causative agent of hydatidosis, Echinococcus granulosus

    Analysis of purity by SDS-PAGE. Protein purity of each fraction was analyzed by SDS-PAGE in 15% polyacrylamide gels. Ten microgram of protein were loaded for the total lysate pre- (PI) and post-induction (I), flow through (FT), and washing steps (W). Five microgram of protein was loaded for the eluate (E).

Introducing the New Editor-in-Chief of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education

NA

Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education is a leading journal in this field because of the fine leadership that Donald and Judy Voet had provided over the past 10+ years. As I take the helm, my objectives include preserving and growing all of the very fine standards and traditions they have established. Over the coming year I will work with the Editorial Board to determine areas that the journal might explore so that it can continue to meet the needs of educators throughout the world. For example, it might be appropriate to focus some attention on emerging pedagogies in distance education, continuing refinements in professional and medical education, strategies for overcoming the challenges faced by underserved students, and the emergence of underrecognized educational committees.

On behalf of the Editorial Board of BAMBEd, I encourage scientists and educators to continue submitting their finest ideas and reports to this journal. In additiona, please do contact me if you have constructive suggestions for how we may continually develop this journal so that it will remain a leader in developing and sharing pedagogical ideals.
