Simulate the Natural World with Virtual Biology Lab
Virtual Biology Lab is a free, online educational resource provided for educational purposes. VBL simulates natural environments with the way life responds to changing conditions. We provide a world to be explored rather than a path to be followed. Background information and technical instruction help students learn by experimentation. Parameters and conditions adjust easily for observable effects and consequences. Because these are stochastic simulations, no two runs are identical. The data generated are biologically realistic and are displayed numerically and graphically. Typically, students will design experiments and conduct them using our models, but collect and analyze their data in other software.
