The general aim of this project is to experience the Synthetic Biology process - the use of engineering principles to design and build a biologically-based system. Our Project will involve the construction and characterization of the genetic toggle switch- a well-known biological construct. The project has two main components: The implementation of computational analysis of a Toggle Switch model and the Wetlab construction and testing of the Toggle Switch.
We will also deliver a Wiki - a website that serves as a digital logbook as well as contain extensive documentation on every aspect of the project including our Initial Research, Modelling and Final Implementation. The link to this is:
Because of the nature of this project, our more specific aims of what our end construct and set of results will be have been changing over time.
