LabXchange helped me imagine using the tool and even doing methods that I had never directly done before. So, I can understand the reason behind the methods or tools. The biggest thing in LabXchange is the simulation part.

That is real, I feel like a scientist with amazing stuff. I could interact with professionals or educators as my mentor to give me suggestions, and advice about my study and career.

LabXchange is very helpful for me to demonstrate laboratories activity because of my university’s lack of lab stuff. With LabXchange I can imagine and use the lab stuff; although it is virtual, it's really fun and meaningful for me. Thank you so much!

The videos related to restriction enzymes were just amazing. They helped my biotechnology students relate the process or mechanism more clearly and effectively. &  What I like most about LabXchange are the easy illustrations of difficult concepts.
