Virtual Bioengineer Simulation

Learn and Practice your genetic engineering skills

Virtual Bioengineer Simulator to learn Genetic Engineering, Synthetic Biology, Biotechnology

 What is genetic engineering? How does one do genetic engineering? Is it the same as Biotechnology?

Virtual Bioengineer takes you through a genetic engineering journey. Learn how to grow bacteria and engineer them with DNA! In the end, you'll a glimpse of where modern medicine, food, and many materials come from. Biology and living systems are amazing. One of the best ways to understand how they work is to engineer with them. Virtual Bioengineer can be used in middle school and high school classrooms, in the Do-It-Yourself Biology or Maker community, or in the home. Virtual bioengineer is being developed with the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) in mind. Great for STEM teachers and the curious. Takes 20-30 minutes to complete.
