We studied genes responsible for radiation resistance in Deinococcus and E. coli using latest techniques in genome sequencing. With aid of RNA-seq technique and application of various genome alignment and analysis software suites we were able to study the genetic correlations of species' radiation responses. In the process we were able to create a number of tools that might aid future teams in working with tools of synthetic biology and the parts registry.

Team Philosophy

Synthetic biology is an emerging area of multidisciplinary science that tries to take the best lessons of the engineering and informations technologies and integrate them into study and design of biological systems. We believe the only way for the new field to take root and grow to its full potentials is to foster open exchange of data and ideas. And we aim to contribute to the field by developing tools that allows people to do synthetic biology easier and lets them communicate their data to and from others using uniform standard.
