Gene microarrays, mobile game and cancer cure

UK’s Cambridge Research Institute have developed a mobile game utilising gene microarrays that could actually help researchers find a cure for cancer.

“Researchers use gene microarrays to look for regions of our genome that are frequently faulty in different cancers–a sign that they may be responsible for causing the cancer,” organizers said. “If scientists can find genes that promote cancer development, they can design drugs to stop them.”
