Team:Paris Bettencourt/Medal Requirements

Medal Requirements

Bronze Medal

  • We registered our team, and had a great summer! :)
  • We have met all deliverables
  • The attributions of every team member are available here
  • We have created, submitted and documented a dozen BioBricks. One of them is BBa_K2043002 which represents our contribution for the bronze medal.

Silver Medal

  • BBa_K2043004 is a xylE gene from Pseudomonas putida codon optimized for expression in E. coli; a new and well documented standard biological part. Our contribution for the silver medal requirements.
  • Paris Bettencourt iGEM team has made many many friends over the summer. Our colaborations are listed here.
  • Our project tackled a serious issue of perchlorethylene (PERC) poisoning in the dry-cleaning facilities. On this link you can read more about this problem: how we identified, investigated and addressed it.

Gold Medal

  • On this link we present how the PERC poisoning problem was integrated into our project. How we designed and addressed the issue through our project.
  • We have also improved the characterization of two previously existing BioBricks (BBa_K1321357 and BBa_K863001). For the gold medal requirements we are providing the description of the improvements made for BBa_K1321357, a BioBrick designed by iGEM team of Imperial College London in 2014.
  • The proof of concept shows that our project can be implemented
