The project idea was based on previous research conducted by Dr. Enoch Young at Caltech.
Plasmid quantification was performed by Sam Clamons, Vipul Singhal, and Reed McCardell at the Murray Bioengineering Lab at Caltech, using a NanoDrop. All other work on this project was done by the Alverno Heights Academy student team.
DNA sequencing performed by Laragen, Inc. and Bio Basic, Inc.
Thank you to everyone who supported us so generously. This project would not have been possible without each and every one of you!
We would like to thank our mentor, Sam Clamons, for his incredible tutelage, and our school for supporting our team’s participation in iGEM. We had an incredibly fun and busy summer, and are so grateful to be a part of this year’s competition.
Extra Special Thanks To:
The Richard Murray Lab at Caltech for the loan of essential biotechnology equipment. We would like to thank Professor Richard Murray, specifically, for his great support of science education and for supporting our research in a multitude of ways. Also, thank you to Reed McCardell and Vipul Singhal for their assistance in using the Murray Lab NanoDrop.
