Guardians of the Genome is a multiplayer, virtual reality (VR) game designed to teach players about accurate DNA structure through collaborative, hands-on experiences. Equipped with special tools emulating DNA repair enzymes, players are tasked with fixing common mistakes in DNA called base-pairing errors. Experienced solo or in cooperation with friends, Guardians is a fun and immersive way to learn about this fundamental molecule of life.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

  • Differentiate between the four nitrogenous bases of DNA
  • Demonstrate complementary base pairing
  • Identify the enzymes and processes involved in DNA mismatch repair

CURRICULUM CONNECTIONS

SBI4U (Grade 12 University Biology)

  • D2.2 analyse a simulated strand of DNA to determine the genetic code and base pairing of DNA
  • D3.1 explain the current model of DNA replication, and describe the different repair mechanisms that can correct mistakes in DNA sequencing
  • F3.2 explain the structure and functions of macromolecules (e.g., DNA, RNA) and the synthesis of proteins (e.g., transcription, translation, gene expression)
