In this game, you will be provided with various options. This will be a game of life; you will encounter problems along the way, but these problems will be realistic. In addition to encountering problems, you will also have opportunities to solve these problems. You will learn about historical treatments for various diseases and even new, modern breakthroughs.
This game was made for my AP Biology Final project and it will encompass various topics: genetics, DNA, RNA, treatments, biological processes, and more. The Big Ideas presented in this simulation will be information, systems, and evolution. You will be able to observe how evolution drives both the diversity and unity of life; how systems store, retrieve, transmit, and respond to information for the essentials of life; and how biological systems interact through rigorous properties.
