With the “Labster Virtual Lab Experiments” book series you have the unique opportunity to apply your newly acquired knowledge in an interactive learning game that simulates common laboratory experiments. Try out different techniques and work with machines that you otherwise wouldn’t have access to.In this volume on “Basic Biology” you will learn how to work in a biological laboratory and the fundamental theoretical concepts of the following topics: Lab SafetyMitosisMeiosisCellular RespirationProtein SynthesisIn each chapter, you will be introduced to the basic knowledge as well as one virtual lab simulation with a true-to-life challenge. Following a theory section, you will be able to play the corresponding simulation. Each simulation includes quiz questions to reinforce your understanding of the covered topics. 3D animations will show you molecular processes not otherwise visible to the human eye.10.1007/978-3-662-57996-1
