Welcome to your project page!

For each part listed, you should:

  • Design oligos to make your part
  • Write up proper construction files and put it on the Construction Files page
  • Put your oligos on the Oligo Log page
  • Put your parts into Clotho

You should design your construction strategy to put your part into plasmid vectorName-Bca1144 (Where vectorName is indicated for each part) using EcoRI and BamHI or just BamHI or BglII for EIPCR. The maps for all plasmids involved in our project can be downloaded here.

Several references have been provided to give you some background on the biology of your part.

Also, use the link above left to upload a picture of yourself, your name, and anything else you'd like.

Finally, you should create a notebook on the main page of the wiki

sbb34: Ala6 linker

 Source:  Synthetic
 Target Sequence:  AAAAAA (protein)
 Vector:  pBjk2741
 Short description: Ala6 linker
 Flavor:  {<part>}
 Family:  Linker

This part encodes a peptide linker. So, the peptide sequence is AAAAAA, but you'll need to generate a DNA sequence that encodes this peptide. Your peptide will be used as a spacer element to separate the dual tags that we'll use to quantify protein expression levels.

sbb07: Tn5 Transposase

 Source:  pRL27
 Vector:  pBjk2741
 Short description: <tn5>
 Flavor:  {<part>} 
 Family:  Transposase

This part encodes a DNA modifying enzyme

Different DNA modification enzymes are needed in different flavors, so take special note of what type this one should be. DNA modification enzymes are often toxic to E. coli, so you may have some difficulty making this part. Make careful note in your notebook about the size distribution of colonies you get on your plates and the ratio of red to white colonies.

This part is associated with Tn5 transposon devices

Tn5 transposase is a popular enzyme that generates protein-DNA complexes called transposomes from DNAs flanked by "terminal repeats". These terminal repeats, or TR's, are specific cis elements. The transposomes are highly reactive and insert the DNA contained within them randomly into other DNAs (such as a genome). Unlike Sleeping Beauty and piggyBac which comes from eukaryotic organisms, Tn5 comes from enterobacterial tranposons.
