Virtual Cell


Shown above is a single plant cell. In real life it would be very difficult to isolate it like this. But then, this is a virtual cell. As you look around this cell things should look real, however they are models that are only an approximation of the real things. And since we do not want to deceive you, but teach you, we included real electron micrographs. Look at them and keep in touch with reality. Have a safe journey and beware of flying chloroplasts!


(The author of the Virtual Cell has recently developed a similar system for WWW based movement in virtual and real spaces - it is going into use at Virtual Cities)
