Virtual Plant Biotechnology and Genomics Laboratory
This software program immerses students in five different scenarios. In each case, students research and isolate a gene of interest, transform a virtual plant, and explore the controversial issues surrounding transgenic crops. In addition to gaining familiarity with equipment and techniques in the virtual lab, students are provided with topical readings, background information, and videos of researchers at work.
