    Players will roll dice, gather resource cards, form dynamic alliances, and create trading strategies to learn mRNA splicing - a complex biological process in a board game. The player who gets 10 Protein cards first wins the game!

    Easy to play! No prior knowledge is needed.

    In every living organism, DNA carries the genetic information. DNA is first transcribed into mRNA in order to decode the genetic information. Then, mRNA is translated into proteins. The genetic information is often interrupted by "junk" fragments (introns) in higher organisms, such as humans. Therefore, the initial transcribed mRNA contains both genetic fragments (exons) and "junk" fragments. Introns should be removed and exons should be joined in a process called mRNA splicing. ?The splicing mechanism was awarded the 1993 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine.
