Nanobot

Difficulty: PhD

Progress: Optional challenge

Description: We have a skin sample from a patient with skin cancer.
Can you engineer an organism that can remove the cancer cells but keep the rest of the skin intact?


Win Conditions: Have all 13 initial lipocytes turn into 13 infected cells

A problem: the lipos and photos are all m1

Selective Infection ;) .
A machine able to infect M1's selectively, and accurately.

Not a problem, a feature ;)

Otherwise it'd be too easy, right?

Yep. At first, I thought I have to make a virus that can "spread" inside the "tissue" layers and infect all the black cells. Sadly, a condition limits me from doing so by counting exactly the number of cells that shouldn't be infected.

Yeah, I've designed this one to really give you a run for your money :-)

It's actually doable with a 4 celled organism ;-)

It is, indeed. I haven't tried my 3-celled organism again. I'm still convinced that a 3-celled organism can do it.

EDIT:
Not only convinced but I also cracked it. Looks like it only needed a slight balance in nutrient priority and some adhesin strengthening. 3-celled solution confirmed!

Me too :P
Can you send it to me please?
I am very curious that how you control the Nanobot with only 3 cells.
