Team:Gaston Day/Results


  • Designed project Killswitch
  • Built three constructs: pBAD tetR, pBAD GFP, tetR GFP
  • Tested fluorescences per OD600 in pBAD GFP
  • Educational synthetic biology activities with elementary and middle schoolers during Back to School Barbeque
  • Schiele Museum Synthetic Biology Activity
  • Forum at Schiele Museum for high schoolers and adults to discuss the implications of genetic engineering

In Progress

  • The rest of the constructs
  • Inducing constructs with different concentrations of arabinose
  • Testing completed constructs for fluorescence production
  • Modeling metabolic stress
