Welcome to the Molecular Biology CyberLab
at the University of Illinois.

The Molecular Biology CyberLab is no longer being developed or supported, but please feel free to browse the information that is available.

The goal of this project is to allow students to understand the "why's," and "how's" of common molecular biology experiments without having to actually do them, while leaving most of the theory for lecture.

This site is divided into categories by experiment. It may be a good idea to scan through the background information before starting. Enjoy!
