Simulator of a Laboratory of Biotechnology


The Simulator of a Laboratory of Biotechnology covers three basic methods used in biotechnology: Extraction of DNA from E. coli, Polymerase Chain Reaction and Agarose Gel Electrophoresis of DNA. Each method consists of three Levels: Tour, Testing and Exercise. The simulator is free. An internet connection is required to use the simulator. All progress is saved in an online database so that the simulator is not linked to a particular computer and you are able to login to the simulator from any compatible computer with the internet connection.

Download the zip archive, extract it to a local hard drive (~500 Mb unzipped), enter the “Lab_simulator” folder and run the Lab_simulator.exe file. If your computer does not support the simulator then it will show a warning. Unfortunately, in this case you are not able to launch the simulator on that computer. Try to find a compatible computer. If your OS does not have required Visual C++ libraries then the program will offer you to install them. In this case you need to install those libraries by following the instructions.

System requirements: CPU - Intel Celeron 2.1 GHz, RAM - 4Gb, GPU - DirectX 11 compatible, OS Windows 7 SP1 64-bit, ~500 Mb HDD free space.
