This virtual exercise immerses students in five different scenarios. In each case, they research and isolate a gene of interest, transform a virtual plant, and explore the controversial issues surrounding transgenic crops. In addition to gaining familiarity with equipment and techniques in the virtual lab, students are also provided with topical readings, background information, and videos of researchers at work. The exercise can be run online or downloaded as software.
