Group 1's project overview and part design

  • Very High CO2 Tolerance (~97%)
  • N-ary Switch
  • Sloppy Terminator
  • Bistable Sender/Receiver Differentiation
  • Fractal Generation
  • Sound Generation/Reception

Of these, the most likely to be doable in the given timeframe with likely limited resources would be either generating a library of terminators to specifically achieve a gradient in efficiencies or the bistable sender/receiver system wherein transient signals could be used to generate complex spatiotemporal patterns.

For my project proposal, I suggest a modified form of Anthrax Toxin Receptor I (ATR1- Unmodified: UPI0000027636) which has had its MIDAS region removed thus disabling the ability of Anthrax Protective Antigen (PA) to bind to ATR. Since PA is required for Edema Factor (EF) and Lethal Factor (LF) to have any effect, this could potentially stop the pathogenesis of anthrax.

I decided to go with the sloppy terminator generation idea, so I appended my own PowerPoint to Brandon's for easier flow during the presentation.
