Hero.Coli is a game created at the CRI to teach the basics of synthetic biology. It was developed in parallel with the Synthetic Biology One course materials, to introduce key concepts and build intuition for DNA design. Also it’s more fun than a barrel o’ prokaryotes.

Players control a tiny cell in a living world, collecting and combining functional DNA fragments to gain abilities, solve puzzles and survive!
