The Cybertory Project is a collection of on-line educational simulations supporting a wide range of problem-based exercises in molecular biology, molecular genetics, and bioinformatics.
Simulation-based exercises are similar in many respects to laboratory experiments. For example, they generally require running positive and negative controls to tell the difference between a failed experiment and a negative result. Our simulators produce results in the same formats one might find in a lab. This allows exercises to include realistic data analysis procedures, where students must deal with experimental uncertainty. Please take a moment to browse through our collection of exercises in the sidebar at the left to get an idea of the breadth of technologies and applications covered.
Welcome to our worldwide community of users. We appreciate any comments, questions and suggestions you may have. Your feedback supports our efforts to make it easier and more economical to offer sophisticated online problem-based instruction in molecular biology.
