A citizen science project to explore the human genome

Juega Genigma

As part of the ORION Open Science project, we have developed a game for smartphones to explore genomic alterations in cancer cells. We want to involve citizens in the construction of genomic reference maps that will allow us to understand which parts of the human genome play a key role in the establishment and development of cancer.

Since 2019, more than 500 people have collaborated in the co-creation and testing phases of the game. From January 2022, everyone will have the opportunity to collaborate with this research. Are you in?

The #GenigmaChallenge is over! The #GenigmaEureka begins

The app is still active! While the research team is analysing the data, you will be able to play with genome fragments from the identified Eureka zones and, in this way, help to test whether it is possible to advance the analysis of the ordering of these fragments at a higher level of resolution.
