Gene strands (GS) are resources that can be used to purchase various upgrades.

GS and GS upgrades are not lost after attacking a planet, but entering a Black Hole will cause the player to lose all GS upgrades and transform the unspent GS into Dark Matter

New GS can be obtained by killing a percentage of a planet's population.

Gene Strand Bonus

Unspent Gene Strands provide a 1% increase to global BPS.

This can be increased to 2% by researching Schroedinger's Gene at the Dark Matter Institute.

Drop Amount

Gene Strands are earned from planet attacks. The base amount is calculated according to formula

  • GeneStrands - how many GS will be obtained in the planet attack
  • Total Population Killed - the total number of killed inhabitants after the attack on current planet
  • Population Killed - the number of inhabitants that will be killed in the current attack
  • Initial Population - the initial number of inhabitants on the current planet

The amount of GS earned can also be increased by bonuses from equipped Evolved Bacteria.
