	VirtLab Group is please to announce the release of VIRTLAB by Iazzetti G &
Calogero R.A.; VIRTLAB is an
interactive program that teaches practical aspects of molecular biology.
VIRTLAB is designed for students in biological sciences at the
undergraduate level.

	VIRTLAB is a self-training program based on PBL (Problem-Based-Learning
Pathway) built to simulate a molecular biology laboratory. It has been
designed to stimulate students in the biological sciences to analyse and
solve molecular biology problems using standard laboratory techniques (e.g.
restriction enzyme digestions, analytical and preparative agarose gels, DNA
cloning and sequencing, etc.). Moreover, VIRTLAB allows students to address
 the following typical research project: "Characterization of a cDNA clone
derived from a human cDNA library". 

	The VIRTLAB package is distributed free of charge to non-profit
organisations by the authors (calogero at biol.dgbm.unina.it). On-line help
and tutorials, available now in English, French, Italian, and shortly in
German, are provided with the software, at
http://biol.dgbm.unina.it:8080/VirtLab.html or at
http://biol.dgbm.unina.it:8080/virtlab.html.
