Project Discovery

Project Discovery is the first citizen science mini-game perfectly integrated in a Massively Multiplayer Online Game. EVE Online players look at high-resolution images of human cells and categorize protein patterns. The goal is to integrate the classifications in the public database ‘Subcellular Protein Atlas’ and to build a map of human biology. Project Discovery is a collaboration between Massively Multiplayer Online Science, Reykjavík University, CCP and the Human Protein Atlas.
