Gene expression changes after each cell division

Our project would be able to exhibit, in E. coli, that despite carrying the same genetic information, different phenotypes can be expressed across generations. Moreover, this technology could potentially be applied in field to carry out certain tasks automatically without the need of external input eg. to make engineered cells automatically carry programmed cell death after a certain number of divisions.
For details, see our Project.
