The various working methods in cell biology laboratories are the focus of the educational game "Plague Buster". Humanity is threatened by a bioterrorism attack from a rapidly spreading anthrax pathogen. Participating chemistry students take on the role of a scientist who must develop a new medication to save the world's population. In the process, they go through various stages of drug testing in the virtual laboratory. The game is interlinked with the theoretical contents of the lecture and constitutes part of the participants' course work.
