View Resource The Bacterial Identification Virtual Lab

Description from the website:The purpose of the lab is to familiarize you with the science and techniques used to identify different types of bacteria based on their DNA sequence. Not long ago, DNA sequencing was a time-consuming, tedious process. With readily available commercial equipment and kits, it is now routine. The techniques used in this lab are applicable in a wide variety of settings,...
View Resource The Immunology Virtual Lab (Pirelli INTERNETional Award winner)

Description from the website: This virtual laboratory will demonstrate how such a test, termed an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), is carried out and show some of the key experimental problems that may be encountered. Components of the immune system called antibodies are found in the liquid portion of blood and help protect the body from harm. Antibodies can also be used...
View Resource The Transgenic Fly Virtual Lab

Description from the website: This interactive, modular lab explores the techniques used to make transgenic flies and demonstrates how these flies can be used to study gene expression. Scientists use transgenic organisms, which contain DNA that scientists inserted in the organisms? genomes, to research many biological processes. In this lab, students produce and conduct experiments with v...
