EVE Online - Project Discovery
Help in analyzing COVID-19 data by playing a video game.
Project Discovery is the first citizen science mini-game perfectly integrated in a Massively Multiplayer Online Game.
In past iterations of the game, EVE Online players looked at high-resolution images of human cells and categorized protein patterns, or even looked for exoplanets.
The newest iteration of Project Discovery allows you to analyze data produced by flow cytometers. Using a tracing tool, you will draw polygons around clusters of cells. In doing so, you will participate in analyzing COVID-19 data, as well as other related flow cytometry charts, which will help scientists understand better how our immune systems are impacted by this novel coronavirus.
