Pathogenesis is a deck building game in which players take on the role of bacterial pathogens attacking a human host. The pathogens must survive the body's powerful immune response, adapt in an ever changing environment, and evolve to take on virulence factors to increase their attack, defense, and other abilities so that they may do enough damage to defeat the body before the human host becomes immune and all the players lose the game.
The game offers several modes of play including solo play, cooperative, competitive, and team play. No knowledge of science is required to play but it was developed to enhance the learning of the immune system at the college level.
