In this lab, students prepare and analyze virtual bacterial DNA samples. In the process, they learn about several common molecular biology methods, including DNA extraction, PCR, and DNA sequencing and analysis. These methods are applicable in a wide variety of settings, including scientific research and forensic labs.
Originally developed by A3MG in 1998, the virtual lab was modernized in 2023 to work on phone-sized devices and improve its accessibility.
