what's in a cell?
The eukaryotic cell is comprised of a dizzying array of molecules, proteins, and organelles. To understand the nature of these entities and their processes across both time and space can be a daunting task. The goal of Meta!Blast is to provide a medium--a dynamic virtual cell--that lends itself to the comprehension of cell and metabolic biology.
Of course, building and populating an accurate 3D representation of a plant cell is no trivial undertaking, which is why the Meta!Blast team spans numerous disciplines. Faculty and students in biology, art, computer science, music, and game design are all equally important in the construction of a compelling and accurate virtual cell game.
