Notes to Users

Guest Login

It you access the Virtual Laboratory through this page, it will ask you to log in. If you have signed up for a free account through the Simzymes online catalog, you should use that user name and password to login here. Any items you have 'ordered' from the catalog will appear in the lab when you log in. You will only be able to save your lab configuration in our database if you have your own account.

If you log in as a guest, you will be presented with a standard read-only configuration; currently, it is set up for RFLP analysis of sickle cell anemia. For more details on a suggested experiment to perform with this configuration, see the RFLP and Electrophoresis demo.

Using the Interface

These are brief notes on how to use the virtual lab. For more example protocols, including PCR, see 'Demos' on the Guest Access pages.
