After AminoCraft*, the entertaining application to memorize the chemical structure of the 20 amino acids, two IBS researchers, Ee de Rosny and Véronique Rossi, associate professors at Université Grenoble Alpes (UGA), in collaboration with Marie-France Breton (Cergy University) have developed MetaboCraft. The new challenge is to reconstitute the metabolic pathways of glycolysis and the Krebs cycle.
Like AminoCraft, the goal is to provide a great way for students to have fun while quickly learning biochemical elements on their smart phone, any time of the day, while commuting, in the street or on a coffee break.
MetaboCraft, which development was funded by the IDEX initiative from Grenoble Alpes University, is available for free, in French and English on Google play and App store.
*Since its release in September 2016, AminoCraft has been downloaded by over 100,000 users mainly aged between 18 and 24 years old. Most users are from France, followed by Algeria and the United States (february 2022 figures).
