    I asked these questions to some other science forums, but nobody has given an answer to me yet.
    I've been planning to make a pharmacology project to take part in a science competition. I'm a sixteen year old student from Turkey, and this competition helds place in my country. I have a good project in my mind, but testing with vertebrates is against the rules. I have searched for other ways to do my project and now I'm thinking about in silico experimentation. What do you think about in silico? Is it something I can use if I have an expert with me?

    Maybe If I send e-mails to universities I will find a lab to work. My school has limited possibilities for biology experiments. Even if in silico is impossible, I need a lab to work.

    If you have any information about university labs with in silico technology, I would be pleased to learn about them.

    You might need to ask this in the appropriate forum (Biology?). I don't think a post with a very generic title in the General forum is going to get much attention.

    Could you elaborate on your experiment idea?

    I want to show how tobacco tar heals wounds. Tobacco production is very high in Turkey and it is common for people to apply the tar on their injured skin. I have thinked about experimenting on worms since it is spineless, but it won't show the effect like human skin. Do you have any ideas?

    I'm not sure use of an in silico approach would be very beneficial or practical. Perhaps you should just use an invertebrate that has similar tissue as a human? I'm not aware of any though.
