About This Simulation
The Cellular Respiration Lab covers the main pathways of glucose metabolism and energy use. The storyline starts with a contract for the student by the National Football Team to perform a study on how our body utilizes the energy. The goal is to improve the training plan of the players. After a general introduction to basic concepts guided by a conversation with your colleague you have to make decisions about the design of the experimental set up.
You perform respirometry experiments with mice running at different speeds and under different oxygen levels availability. After the analysis of your results you will prepare a report with suggestions for the coach of the team. Will the new training plan improve the achievements of the football players?
