Play to Cure: Genes in Space - Help Beat Cancer!
[center][video]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CeEDAchrc1U[/video] [b][i]Beating cancer through a space game never seemed possible. Until now.[/i][/b][/center] Play to Cure™: Genes in Space is the world’s first free mobile game that uses the collective force of players to analyse real genetic data and help beat cancer sooner. Every day, scientists across the globe are painstakingly analysing the genetic faults in thousands of cancer samples. They are looking for clues that will help develop new cancer treatments. This game let’s you help. [b]The Game[/b] The mission of Genes in Space is to collect a fictional substance dubbed Element Alpha. This represents genetic cancer data, which might underpin certain types of cancer. As a recruit of the game's 'Bifrost Industries', your mission is to collect the valuable and tradable substance Element Alpha and rise through the employee ranks by: [ul] [li]Mapping your route through the densest areas of Element Alpha.[/li] [li]Following your route as you fly through space collecting as much Element Alpha as you can, destroying asteroids along the way.[/li] [li]Avoiding and shooting asteroids to get to the next level of Element Alpha collection.[/li] [li]Upgrading your ship to become more powerful and trading your Element Alpha for more points.[/li] [/ul] [b]The science behind the game[/b] The data analysis goes back to our scientists at two key points: [ul] [li]firstly when you map your route through the Element Alpha[/li] [li]secondly when you fly your spaceship through the intergalactic space course to collect this substance.[/li] [/ul] Element Alpha represents genetic cancer data that scientists across the world analyse on a daily basis. Genes in Space has successfully translated this data into an interactive, asteroid-strewn intergalactic assault course. By collecting Element Alpha and navigating your spaceship through the cosmos you’re finding the significant genetic changes which help scientists to discover cancer causing genes and develop new life saving treatments. By playing Genes in Space you'll be analysing significant amounts of genetic data which would have taken scientists hours to do. This data can then be used to develop new life saving treatments. [b]So gamers take note. The Genes in Space story may not be real, but the impact of what you’re doing is far from science-fiction.[/b] [center]Download it now for your mobile device!
