Case It! molecular biology computer simulations

Case It! is an NSF-funded BioQUEST project to provide molecular biology simulations for case-based learning in biology, free of charge for educational use. Case It v5.03 will perform DNA/protein electrophoresis, PCR, Southern, Western and dot blotting, and ELISA on any DNA or protein sequence (up to 5 million base pairs or amino acids). Associated cases have been developed for a variety of genetic and infectious diseases, including breast cancer, Alzheimer disease, AIDS, influenza, West Nile, Salmonella, and sexually-transmitted infections, among others. Software, cases, tutorials, and publications are available at the Case It web site, including video cases for AIDS in the U.S. and Africa (courtesy of Discovery Education and Media for Development International). The site also provides to a... Show More
