VIRTUAL LABORATORIES

Installable programs in this section: Virtual Laboratories

Virtual Microscop

Description: Virtual Microscope is an open-source project funded by NASA.
The virtual microscope is a Java application as a functional support for various types of microscopy (electronics, optics and scanning probes), high resolution multi-dimensional image data sets for these tools (through the “Imaging Technology Group” contribution) training to learn more about microscopy and other related tools.
Currently it supports data for interactive viewing from three different instruments of Microscope Suite: “Philips Environmental Scanning Electron Microscope” (ESEM), “Fluorescence Light Microscope” and “Atomic Force Microscope”.

Virtual Lab Chemistry

Description: The Virtual Lab is an online simulation of a chemistry lab.
It is designed to help students link chemical computations with authentic laboratory chemistry.
The lab allows students to select from hundreds of standard reagents (aqueous) and manipulate them in a manner resembling a real lab.

VGLII

Description: The Virtual Genetics Lab (VGLII) is a simulation of transmission genetics that approximates, as closely as possible, the hypothesis-testing environment of genetics research.
The goal is to have students understand the logic of genetic analysis – how one can use crosses to determine how a trait is inherited and reinforce their understanding of transmission genetics.
