Students being taught in the lab eBiolabs. A Dynamic Laboratory Manual for the Biosciences.

eBiolabs is a Dynamic Laboratory Manual for the Biosciences.  We've taken traditional paper-based laboratory protocols and completely reinvented them.  Rich multimedia is used to bring scientific techniques to life, allowing our students to fully prepare for their experiments.  This is combined with the extensive use of class-leading automated submission and marking processes.  Together it means our students achieve more.

DNA The eBiolabs story

The world’s most comprehensive online laboratory resource for bioscience students, invented at and exclusive to the University of Bristol. eBiolabs is a Dynamic Laboratory Manual that helps our students succeed in the lab. It includes simulations, videos and instructional text as well as a comprehensive suite of self-help resources.

GU award smlBecause eBiolabs integrates quizzes, coursework submission and automated marking systems as well as feedback and attendance tracking, it has radically changed the student and staff experience. Runner-up for the Guardian University Award for Teaching Excellence, 2013, eBiolabs is a dynamic laboratory manual for the 21st century. It replaces printed manuals with high quality multimedia videos and interactive animations. By practising methods and techniques online our students gain experience and confidence, and this helps them to achieve more in the laboratory.

We have world-leading scientists working with award-winning designers, educators and programmers, together they have created a resource that allows students to flourish in the laboratory.
