Searching for the Hereditary Molecule

How was the hereditary molecule isolated and identified? What decisions do we need to make as we recreate the lab work of researchers like Oswald Avery and his colleagues? Using the simulation Searching for the Hereditary Molecule, we can manipulate virtual tubes of bacteria in a virtual lab to discover the transforming principle ourselves.

  • recreate classic experiments in the discovery of DNA
