Rebecca Roston teaches the first biochemistry content course for majors, at UNL designated BIOC 431/831. The course helps students understand how the structure of biological macromolecules drives their function, and introduces metabolism, including glycolysis, TCA, ETC, fermentation, PPP, photosynthesis, lipid and protein degradation.
Rebecca is part of a multi-investigator effort to improve the accuracy of students' mental models of macromolecules (DNA, RNA, proteins, lipids). We use 3D printing to design easy class modules that can be used in a lecture or lab of any size. For more details, click here.
In 2019 Rebecca received the Holling Family Award for Teaching Excellence.
In 2017, she received a certificate of recognition for contributions to students from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln
