Mystery of the Sick Puppy: Problem Based Learning with Nanotechnology!
In this unique software you explore characteristics of viruses with the use of atomic force microscopy to figure out what is making a puppy ill. The program involves experimenting with the capsid to determine the shape of the virus, testing for DNA and RNA, and determining the size of the virus to make your diagnosis. This program is available free to educators and students for use in instructional contexts but is copyright protected for other uses. Try it!

This program runs on PC (no Mac version yet) and requires Quicktime.
