BioLab Dissection and Genetics Software

Created by teachers for teachers, this completely interactive CD-ROM series contains five virtual dissections and a genetics fruit fly lab. The series includes BioLab Fish, BioLab Frog, BioLab Fly, BioLab Pig, BioLab Cat, and BioLab Invertebrate.
Each of the titles is an interactive, virtual dissection or genetics lab with inquiry based mini labs. Each CD-ROM continually asks students questions about the material to ensure full understanding of the topic. Supplemental teaching materials such as crossword puzzles, student worksheets, and printed tests and quizzes are included with each title.


  BioLab Fish includes the investigation and dissection of three fish, the lamprey, the dogfish and the yellow perch. A comparison section compares and contrasts the features of these three types of fish. Three MiniLabs allow students to investigate respiratory rate, capillary blood flow and dissolved oxygen levels.

  Biolab Frog is an in depth study of the anatomy and physiology of the frog. Students will investigate the external features, mouth, respiratory, reproductive, and skeletal systems. Four MiniLabs allow students to inquire about: breathing rate, the alimentary canal, heart rate, and muscle contraction. Demo   More...
     
  BioLab Fly is an interactive tutorial that teaches the fundamentals of genetics. Students will investigate F1, F2, Sex-linked, and dihybrid crosses using virtual fruit flies. Each investigation includes pre-lab instruction, thorough open-ended lab simulation, and post-lab reinforcement. Also included is the Fly Breeder, an open-ended activity that allows students to analyzing up to 26 different physical characteristics. Students will apply what they have learned to determine the pattern of inheritance of each trait. Demo   More...
     
  Biolab Pig is an in depth study of the anatomy and physiology of the fetal pig. Students will dissect the digestive, respiratory, urogenital, endocrine, and skeletal systems. Each system includes an Extension that elaborates on a specific area of each system. Two MiniLabs allow students to inquire about: how exercise affects carbon dioxide levels and how the heart rate recovers after exercise. Demo   More...
     
  BioLab Cat is an in depth study of the anatomy and physiology of the cat. Comparisons between human and cat anatomy are present throughout the program. Students will thoroughly investigate the cat's skeletal system, musculature, and three organ systems. The musculature includes: shoulder, trunk, pectoral, and pelvic views. The organ systems included are the digestive, cardiorespiratory, and urogenital. Demo   More...
     
  BioLab Invertebrate provides an in depth study of four common invertebrates. Students will observe and dissect three views of the squid, earthworm, crayfish, and sea star. A comparisons section allows students to compare and contrast the major systems of each of the four invertebrates. Also included is a survey of over twenty other different invertebrates. Daphnia Heart Rate Lab allows students to determine the effect of various drugs on the heart rate in this common invertebrate.Demo   More...
