In this package, you are going to learn molecular biology by application of virtual-reality technologies. The mobile apps allows you to manipulate biomolecules in 3-D using virtual reality headset. You can experience biomolecules more memorable than anything you read in a book.


About 22 virtual biomolecules for Molecular Biology course aiming to help you understand and memorize the three-dimensional structures and the molecular interactions between them that enable function. For each biomolecule, you can also revise what you have learnt by doing the revision questions provided.
