Fast and Scarce Prey

Post by bwisialo » Tue Apr 26, 2016 11:06 am

Description: These prey are no sitting ducks, and they can flurry about to repopulate the plate. They burn so much energy for speed that they don't live long or in high numbers, and that means less food for a predator or parasite.

Objective (Very Difficult): Clean the plate.

Cells: 1 inserted ; no Phagocyte, Glueocyte, or Virocyte

Note: If you open the substrate and there are no prey (results from compatibility issues), I've provided the prey's genome below. Insert the species and let the cell count increase to about 400 (that's how many the challenge substrate has).

There are no preys on your substrate.

Hmm.. I just downloaded from the link and the substrate opened correctly: 407 cells -- black Myocyte swimmers. It doesn't open correctly for you?

@Lennart -- What version of Cell Lab do you have?

@Alast -- Are there incompatibilities between the current beta and the current play store versions? Play store has 60-something right?

62 was the latest release and us beta testers are on 66. Petter would have to answer the question regarding incopatibilities.

I knew there were compatibility issues before, but I thought we were past that stage. When you download the substrate there's just nothing on it? Are the settings low for Nutrient concentration and Chunk size, with high Salinity?

Not you! ;) I know yours is fine. I was just thinking, if the substrate is okay but doesn't have the organism, perhaps I could upload substrate and genome separately.
