We are in Week 7 of the iGEM project

Project Calendar

<calendar> name=IGEM:IMPERIAL/2007/Calendar date = 2007/08/01 view=threemonths format=%name/%year-%month-%day weekstart=7 </calendar>



  • Simulations almost completed - will be put on the wiki during the weekend
  • Compared the modelled graph of pLux construct with the one got by experiment - have the same general shape but no peek in the model
  • ID construct - problem with the constitutive promoter - need more data


  • Have small vesicles with GFP - have more in quantity than before but not entirely sure if they are actually vessicles
  • Need to decide whether to concentrate on gene expression or proof of concept - need more people in the vesicles team

Lab team

  • Finished makig the reaction mixture


  • Tested homemade cell extract with the reaction buffer - doean't work
  • LuxR construct - works quite well in-vitro
  • Will test comercial cell extract with the homemade reaction buffer

Meeting with Prof. Kitney

  • Make presentations - make them see the big picture
  • Need to confirm length of meeting
  • Presentation teams:
    1. Veso - Dirk, Alex
    2. CBD - Alex, PPX, Ant, Lucas
    3. ID - Ben, Jerry, Maira, James
