Base Invaders

Quickly amplify gene fragments with Max

Max can accurately amplify base pairs faster than anyone. Visit Max’s laboratory to amplify as many DNA fragments as possible to generate the correct base pairs. When amplifying DNA base pairs, remember that Guanine “G” pairs with Cytosine “C” and Thymine “T” pairs with Adenine “A.”

To play, move Max to capture the DNA bases emerging from the base generator. Use the arrow keys to move left and right. Use the space-bar to jump. Score points for correctly matching base pairs and lose points for incorrectly matching base pairs. Watch out for the Nuclease blob. Accidently bumping into one will cause irrepairable mutations to your DNA sequence, stopping the amplification instantly.
