About the Crime Scene Investigation Virtual Simulation Lab
In the Crime Scene Investigation lab, you will be thrown right into a crime scene, where a murder has taken place. To investigate the crime scene, your first task is to collect blood samples in hopes that the murderer has left traces of DNA.
Perform a DNA analysis
After sampling, you will get accesses to a virtual lab to perform a DNA analysis. In the lab, a PCR kit, purified DNA from the crime scene, and a full lab bench set up are available. It is now up to you to mix the correct reagents and perform PCR in the lab PCR machine.
See the DNA structure and replication up close
A 3D animation will show the Polymerase Chain Reaction at the molecular level, illustrating DNA structure and replication. Quiz questions will be asked throughout the experimental process, as well as at specific steps of the PCR reaction itself. With the media player function, you will be able to see the animation several times, pause it, or revisit it at a later time for exam preparation.
Identify the murderer
In the Crime Scene Investigation lab, you will run a gel on your collected sample and other already prepared samples from suspects, and then compare the patterns that emerged on the gel.
Will you be able to identify the murderer?
