Hey Ariana, for tonight's meeting I think our agenda should include designing a timeline of all of the assays that need to be completed. Following that, we should divide members into small teams of maybe 2-3 people (3 groups of 3?) that should then do primary research back into the papers for the specific cloning protocols used to obtain the genes we'll have to use (other than the ones that we'll be making de novo). Finally, we should divide up the work for finding protocols for wet lab procedures such as bacterial culture assays, plasmid assembly, electroporation, etc.
If we have time, we should also figure out what we have and what we need, where to get them, how much they cost (i.e. where to get the genes to be synthesized de novo, where to obtain genomes to clone out genes, etc.)
Anything else we should add?
