                        NOVA5000 Experiments in Biology

                        The NOVA5000 Biology experiment book has 30 student experiments divided into five subject groups: Plant Physiology, Cell Processes, Microorganisms, Human Physiology, and Environment.

                        For user convenience we have added an index in which the experiments are sorted according to sensors. As with all Fourier experiments, you’ll find a brief description of the concept and theory as well as equipment lists, setup procedures, experiment procedures, data analysis, questions and further suggestions.
