My son showed me an Android game (Apple also) called Play to Cure: Genes in Space, where by drawing lines through raw data and navigating through space, you help scientists analyze real genetic data and help beat cancer. Any Knights taking a crack at it?

OK I installed in on the I-Pad. Kinda fun so far. First step is drawing a path through the densest part of raw data, kinda like a line on an oscilloscope showing microwave radio signals. Then you drive a space ship along that path, collecting Element Alpha material, and shooting asteroids. Then you can trade your booty Shocked for ship upgrades, etc. I suspect the drawing the line activity is the only "scientific" part of the game, the rest is just for fun?

BTW, creating an account and logging in is confusing; if you have a Zooniverse login, it is the same, dunno why...
