The game is an innovative attempt to deal with the issues surrounding data analysis. As you play you map your route through the fictional Element Alpha, analysing significant amounts of genetic data in the process. This information can then be used by scientists to advance research surrounding cancer treatments.

At DNA digest we are passionate about anything which makes data more accessible and speeds up scientific progress.

What do you think? Why not give the game a go and help accelerate cures for cancer at the same time!
