Colony B

Colony B

Colony B is a fast paced puzzle mobile game developed at McGill University that allows you to contribute to research on microbes. In Colony B, you are in charge of growing a colony of bacteria. Bacteria accumulate to survive. Your goal is to identify clusters of bacteria that are accumulating. Theses clusters generate points based on their density, and allow you in turn to grow your colony. The results are used to analyze data from the American Gut Project based at University of California San Diego. Play Colony B and become a citizen scientist!
