After these last tests and almost 700,000 data collected, we conclude today the first #GenigmaChallenge dedicated to breast cancer. Now it is time for the scientific teams to analyse the results of GENIGMA in depth, before launching a new challenge to the public. The CNAG and the CRG would like to thank all the people […]
A citizen science project to explore the human genome
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.
Between 2019 and 2021, more than 500 people collaborated in the co-creation and testing phases of the game. The app officially opened to the public in January 2022 with the #GenigmaChallenge for breast cancer research. More information on how it was closed can be found on the game’s official website.
