Our team participated this event in July this year. For detailed information, please visit China Meet-up.
Collaborations On The Settlement Of Magnetic Chassis
After China meet-up, we contacted team leaders across mainland China. The Tsinghua 2011 iGem team showed great enthusiasm in measurements on the growth curves of Magnetospirillum magneticum AMB-1, and testing the GFP-expressing shuttle-vector between "Magnetospirillum magneticum" AMB-1 and Escherichia coli, pYMBG (rbs: Pmsp3) anf pYMBG (rbs: Pmsp3 trunc.).As reported from their wiki, pYMBG has successfully been characterized as a competent shuttle vector.
Tianjin University has been collaborating with us on assisting our characterizing of pYMBG shuttle vector, and measurements of growth curve with Magnetospirillum magneticum AMB-1. We have also shown mutual friendship and willingness for long-lasting relationship.
UST-Beijin showed great interests in our Magnetospirillum magneticum AMB-1 and asked us for sending them these bacteria. We have sent them AMB-1 and have been collaborating on characterization of pYMBG (rbs: Pmsp3) and pYMBG (rbs: Pmsp3 trunc.) on Magnetospirillum magneticum AMB-1 and the establishment of growth curves.
