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 of core(More)
Introduction: The Hayabusa mission, the first near-Earth asteroid sample return mission, was designed to demonstrate several key technologies for future sample return missions: ion engines, autonomous navigation, and the use of a projectile and an ejecta catching horn as a sample collecting mechanism [1]. Hayabusa was launched in May 2003 and arrived at(More)
Understanding how basic structural units influence function is identified as a foundational/core concept for undergraduate biological and biochemical literacy. It is essential for students to understand this concept at all size scales, but it is often more difficult for students to understand structure-function relationships at the molecular level, which(More)
