About This Simulation
In the Plant Transcriptomics Simulation, you will embark on a mission to identify the metabolic pathway that produces an antimalarial compound in a rare plant. You only have one plant specimen to extract the RNA and identify the enzymes that are needed to produce a novel antimalarial drug. You will use a method called RNA-seq to quantify the transcription of different genes. Will you be able to identify the enzymes and produce a novel drug that can save millions of people?
