2 Home page

Each application in The OpenScience Laboratory is displayed on the homepage and has a recognisable image, a title, a short description and an indication of how long it should take you to work through the application and associated materials.

Coloured subject labels indicate which subjects the application is relevant to – for example, the application ‘Adipose tissue: virtual microscope’ contains Biology and Health science.

The circle or padlock symbol in the bottom-right hand corner of every application box is an availability flag – an ‘O’ indicates that it is open to the public; an open padlock is for items that are restricted but available to you; and a closed padlock for items that are not currently available to you.

At the top of the homepage we list your last visited application and the two most popular in any given week.
