Microscopic Factories

Post your creations here. It can be either a cool genome or an interesting ecosystem. Indicate if you designed it yourself or if it was created through evolution, or both :). File, picture, or video is required.

I've once worked on something that I did call a gene synthesizer. It would take a string of black and white cells and produce the same string as a copy. It didn't work too well though.

That genome copy sound really interesting! Also how do you copy the string? Maybe i can implement it on my conveyor belt

How about an inverted Y tunnel, with one path as a source of cells and two paths for the destination. A Ciliocyte would be placed on the wall that separates the two destination paths. A Stereocyte could be below it to have a more accurate 'which-is-which' decision.
Yes that what i meant of a really selective membrane, one that are able to seperate diffrent colors. The real problem is making it accurate, because i imagine the input would be like ~5 cells/second and i dont know if the conveyor would be able to withstand that.

Also, i dont know how to make the diverging path, if i force it, the ciliocytes will start to grind from each other and kill the cells, as well the membrane too. One thing that came to my mind is a double layer membrane, to give space for the diverging path so they dont grind each other, and to do that, i need to have information on how to make the membrane itself (may I, Alast? ;) )

The egg of the very membrane is scattered among the modes list. I forgot what mode it is but it's there.

I would actually have to look myself because I don't have the genome anymore. I was only concerned about M1 being my skin cells. Then I've started on the left and figured out the right moment to stop, kill the producing cells and fixate the tissue with Glueocytes.

Reg. the gene sequencer, the idea was to have Stereocytes detecting the color of the current cell and making a single Stemocyte transform to make a copy of that cell. Problem was the Ciliocytes pulled the cell string unecenly ripping apart the adhesin connections.

But then the incoming cells would stock up unto the detection area. Where would the 'detected cells' go?

They would get out of the detector at the other end. The detector would basically have it's own little conveyor 'tunnel' if you will with the detection unit on one side. I'll have to see to redo the design, maybe even find a way to make it better and hopefully work. But not right now, am on vacation :-)
