Adopt an enzyme?
Do you like the idea of adopting an enzyme? If you do, Dr. Marano's biochemistry class might be a perfect course for you.
Students in Dr. Marano's biochemistry class adopt an enzyme for the semester. In this course students learn to assimilate information from research articles, they learn how to use molecular modeling software, and combine their knowledge of biochemical reaction mechanisms to elucidate the precise way that their enzyme functions. This year on November 5th, 2010 her students presented the results of their adopt an enzyme project at the annual biochemistry poster session.
