Difficulty: Undergrad

Progress: Unlocks gene Secrocyte and further challenges

Description: The Virocyte is a cell infected with a virus. If another cell touches this cell it risks also getting infected unless it is protected by a Keratinocyte. Part of this cells genome will get copied into the other cell when it gets infected. This is very much how a virus works in nature.
Which part of the genome gets copied is specified by the Virus copy from property in the genome editor. Note that not only the genes for one mode are copied but also the genes for the modes of 2 generations of descendants. So a maximum of 1+2+4 modes of the host genome are copied to the newly infected cell.
In this challenge you are supposed to kill all the initial cells by infecting them with a virus and leave the substrate clean

Win Conditions: Empty plate

Hint: Tap on a cell under the microscope and press \"Load\" in the Genome editor and select \"Load from microscope\" to inspect the organisms living on this substrate before designing a virus

Ok, not as clean as other solutions I've done, but I set M1 to gluocyte with a low split massand high nutrient priority, making adhesin. It splitter into two M2s. M2 is set to virocyte and copies from M1.
