Science Gamification: BerryMaker
In BerryMaker, you’re the founder of a biotech start-up company that produces healthy soft drinks made with synthetic biology technology.
You’re going to identify and extract useful genes in berries collected from all over the world, and transfer them to microorganisms that will then produce healthy ingredients for you to use in your soft drink production. As the CEO your aim is to stay ahead of the competition with cutting-edge science, deliver an in-demand drink and maximize your quarterly profits.
With this app you can join us to:
- Mirror the efforts of the real world to identify genes for healthy substances in berries
- Transfer these genes to microorganisms to produce compounds in fermenters
- Experience the real life research and innovation activity that BerryMaker is based on was the European Commission’s FP7 funded BacHBerry project
