About this book

Introduction

This textbook helps you to prepare for both your next exams and practical courses by combining theory with virtual lab simulations. With the “Labster Virtual Lab Experiments” book series you have the unique opportunity to apply your newly acquired knowledge in an interactive learning game that simulates common laboratory experiments. Try out different techniques and work with machines that you otherwise wouldn’t have access to.

In this volume on “Basic Biology” you will learn how to work in a biological laboratory and the fundamental theoretical concepts of the following topics: 

  • Lab Safety
  • Mitosis
  • Meiosis
  • Cellular Respiration
  • Protein Synthesis
  • In each chapter, you will be introduced to the basic knowledge as well as one virtual lab simulation with a true-to-life challenge. Following a theory section, you will be able to play the corresponding simulation. Each simulation includes quiz questions to reinforce your understanding of the covered topics. 3D animations will show you molecular processes not otherwise visible to the human eye.

    If you have purchased a printed copy of this book, you get free access to five simulations for the duration of six months. If you’re using the e-book version, you can sign up and buy access to the simulations at www.labster.com/springer.

    If you like this book, try out other topics in this series, including “Basic Genetcis”, “Basic Biochemistry”, and “Genetics of Human Diseases”.
