Ideas to Debate

Standardization of Measurement

Microscopy Standardization

  1. what reporters are more suitable for bulk measure? or single-cell? or flow cytometry?
  2. how reporter half-life, maturation time, brightness, predisposition to form aggregates affect measurements?
  3. what about multicolor imaging? how we solve the close emission spectra of the different red-emitting reporters?
  4. what about degradation tags, can they turn out to be useful for programmed and precise control of reporters half-life?

Standardization of Gene Expression

Transcriptional Standardization

  • Can this be standardized?

Translational Standardization

  • Can this be standardized?

Transcript Degradation Standardization

  • Can this be standardized?

Protein Degradation Standardization

  • Can this be standardized?

Standardization of 'Format'

Plasmid Standardization

  • Which origins?
  • Do we have data on plasmid localization?

Genome Insertion Standardization

  • Do we have a standard locus for insertion?

Strain Standardization

  • Should we be working in the same genetic background?
