Genes in Space

In an effort to crowdsource some of the harder-to-automate bits of work involved in cancer research, Cancer Research UK has released a mobile game called Genes in Space for both both Android and iOS.

Details on the science behind the game are scarce; I’ll update this post as I learn more.

In the meantime, you can admire the bleary-eyed, non-pub-going developers in the video below, shot at the weekend-long hackathon in London that eventually led to the game you can download today.
