  • Jeffrey E. Barrick 11:33, 24 April 2013 (EDT):It's really odd that the lac promoter is induced by pressure. It seems almost too good to be true. Has anyone ever done a high-throughput screen of microbial promoters to see what other ones are induced by high pressure?
  • Dwight Tyler Fields 17:38, 25 April 2013 (EDT): The application you mention of cleaning up deep water oil spills is interesting. So you mean the cells would be activated by deep water? I'm having trouble visualizing how this would work, since oceanic oil spills can generally only be "processed" for cleanup once they've settled on the surface. Can you elaborate, and/or do you have a link to the source?
