Ok, here I started by selecting one if the white eggs on the dish and loading them from the microscope.

Now that we have our little creature, I change the egg (M4) to a virocyte, copying from M1. I changed the color of M2 to make it easier to tell who's infected. This is important since luck plays a role getting a full infection to spread. Fortunately you can tell pretty quickly if it will fail.

Now that we can replace the starting guys with ours, it's time to design their death. All we need to do to accomplish this is raise the split ratio of the egg so it won't split.

Now start you're infection, and incubate. Once your population takes control, it will now die out.
