The Illinois iGEM team worked to construct a decoder function in E. coli using genetic logic gates comprised of transcription factors and sRNAs. A decoder is a low-level computer architecture that produces a specific output or response depending on the combinations of 2n inputs. The team constructed some parts to this design, but failed to complete the final decoder construct in time for the 2009 iGEM Jamboree. Continuing members worked to construct the remaining parts for this decoder and collected data to verify the integrity of these parts. This year’s team intends to 1.) compile the parts to the decoder, 2.) optimize the system by integrating additional parts from the Standard Registry of Parts, and 3.) implement this function into an environmental application.
