Building on the success of CellSlider, Cancer Research UK has developed Genes in Space, a free mobile game where players analyse real genetic data, while trying to beat their high score. Developers from Facebook, Amazon and Google conceived and prototyped Genes in Space at a 'GameJam' hack weekend in March 2013. The gameplay produces valuable analysis, saving countless hours of professional researchers' time, enabling them to focus their energies on developing new life-saving treatments.
