Thiamin Deficiency: A Directed Case Study

In this directed case study developed for a biochemistry class, students read about the differences in the dietary preferences and practices for preparing and consuming rice among the three major communities of Malaysia, the local Malays and the immigrant Tamils and Chinese. They then answer a series of close-ended questions about the causes and consequences of thiamin deficiency.
