Virtual Cell is an immersive biology simulation where you are able to interact with key biology topics. Using a three dimensional environment, you will learn about each organelle in the plant cell as well as its basic functions. There will be some organelles that are faulty, you must decipher the problem, and fix the organelle to allow proper functioning of the cell. The primary goal is to give a deeper understanding of the cell's function and make learning easier.
