Background

Diagram of Lac operon and how it functions without lactose present (top) and with lactose present (bottom)














Design: Our genetic circuit

OUR GENE SWITCH:


Text describing the image












Building: Assembly Scheme













Testing: Modeling and GFP Imaging


A LAC SWITCH MODEL
We used a previously published synthetic switch, developed by Ceroni et al., to understand how our system could potentially be modeled and simulated.


AN INTERACTIVE MODEL
We used a model of the natural Lac operon to understand how changing the parameter values changes the behavior of the system.


COLLECTING IMPERICAL VALUES TO IMPROVE THE MODEL
We explored how one technique, imaging via microscopy could be used to determine the production rate of an output protein, in this case GFP in yeast, could be used to determine a "real" value for maximum GFP production rate under our own laboratory conditions.



Ideally, the GFP production rate measured by this method could be entered as a value for [which parameter] in the Ceroni et al. model.
