Case It!

"Case it! is a database of studies that can be used to teach molecular biology. What differentiates it from other sites is that it is based around free software that simulates working at a wet bench - students can choose samples for load on as agarose gel, or in a PCR reaction, or in a gene chip, and watch the results of the experiment. They are then asked to interpret these results within the context of a case study."
