Labster gives you access to a realistic lab experience to perform state-of-the-art experiments used in cancer research in a fun and risk-free learning environment.
Mutations in BRCA1 or BRCA2 genes can lead to predisposition to breast cancer. You will use Mendelian genetics and genetic linkage testing to find the defective gene in a family with hereditary breast cancer. Preview.
You will sequence DNA and screen for genes that might be over-expressed in obese pigs versus lean pigs with state-of-the-art Next Generation Sequencing techniques to single out specific genes.
You will learn about the difference between protein synthesis in bacteria and mammals by performing experiments in cells and conducting bioinformatics analyses. Preview.
Taxol, from yew trees, can kill animals but is also used in cancer therapy. You will learn how cells divide and how they are affected by Taxol. Preview.
Your mission is to test if increased blood vessel growth plays a role in breast cancer development in patient samples compared to healthy tissue samples.
Your mission is to test the sensitivity of cancer cells to the chemotherapy drugs epirubicin and cyclophosphamide.
Identify molecular hallmarks of metastasis. Induce metastasis by adding transforming growth factor to cells, identify hallmark proteins, and knock out genes with CRISPR-Cas9 technology.
Your mission is to treat a visually impaired girl using gene regulation techniques. Prepare stem cells from a sample and induce them to become retinal-pigmented epithelial cells for transplantation.
