'Battle for Cattle' is a fun game where you learn everything about diseases, treatment, bacteria and viruses. In the game, the player is confronted with sick farm animals and the problem of antibiotics overuse. The player experiences an increase in antibiotic resistance and learns about the importance and principles of vaccines. The player has to save the lives of cows on a farm and take control over the design of a synthetic biology vaccine.
The game is inspired by and part of a real synthetic biology research project funded by the EU, MycoSynVac (https://www.mycosynvac.eu).
