Gene Regulation

Illustration of a doctor comforting a patient. The same patient is lying down on a scanning apparatus, and a giant histone is also depicted in the image.

Welcome to the Gene Regulation Simulation! In this simulation, you will learn the application of gene regulation for generating induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS). The goal of this simulation is to understand how genes are expressed and how they are regulated. By understanding the basic concept of gene expression, you can control the expression of specific genes and develop iPS cells to cure a girl who is blind. You will perform gene introduction and analyze gene and protein expression. Here you can find all of the related theory needed to complete the case. Good luck!
