Now you can play a role in cancer research by playing a
game. Behind this are the concept of crowd and distribution-based computing.
The idea of ​​solving a major scientific problem by playing a game on different
computers or mobile phones is 15 years old. First, the processing power of home
computers was used under City Eight Home. Since then, the process of protein
folding has been made possible in the spare time on computers and now a new
game called Genigma has been introduced in the form of apps. 


The app has recently been launched for both iOS and
Android. The games contain real-world scientific data, noting changes in
genetic sequencing. In the first stage, it will help in research on the genetic
aspect of breast cancer. Available in many languages, the game is called Genigma
and invites people from all over the world.

According to the company, by April 2022, if 30,000 people
downloaded the game and passed all 50 steps, it could turn into research. All
the details of this process will be transferred to a data card. The tissues of
cancer cells and their aggregates are called cancer cell lines. Medications are
also administered directly to them and their effects are evaluated.

first, the cell line itself is lacking, and second, the genetic sites on them
are hidden, which could lead to research. The game has to solve the mystery of
rows of different colors and shapes and colored blocks. Each of these sequences
represents a genetic sequence. Now gamers can get higher scores only by placing
blocks and logos in the best way. This will help the experts to know the
correct genetic series or sequence. Although this could be done with artificial
intelligence, crowd computing could yield much better results for the human
process. If 30,000 people solve 50 stages of the game, it will provide enough
data to analyze 20,000 genes in the breast cancer cell line.
