The journal "Biochemistry and Molecular Biology 
Education" (BAMBEd) is the official education 
journal of the International Union of 
Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (IUBMB), of 
which the American Society of BMB (ASBMB) is a 
member. This journal is rich with lesson plans 
for wet and computational biochemistry student 
lab experiments, book reviews, opinion, history, 
ethics, and problem-based active learning 
pedagogy. There are also songs and poetry (some 
with mnemonics). At its website, 
http://bambed.org, you will now find all issues 
from July 2000 through December 2006 online and 
searchable, free. (Access to the current two years requires a subscription.)
