Make Something Unreal Live Is "Genetics and Genomics"

This year’s Make Something Unreal Live is a competition “open to teams of six to 10 members consisting of current full-time university students.” The grand prize of full Unreal engine licences tasks entrants with making something from scratch using the Unreal engine, with the theme of “Our Mendelian inheritance: genetics and genomics.” The full brief is here. The reason for this theme is that the competition is now backed by The Wellcome Trust, the charitable foundation which promotes scientific ambition in the UK and around the world. Wellcome’s Dr. Daniel Glaser said of the alliance with Epic: “The Wellcome Trust is committed to using games and gaming culture as a means of engaging people with science, working to network the talent and knowledge of scientists and developers and offering a range of funding schemes.”

Science and games, together again: that’s an inter-disciplinary fist-bump, right there.
