Photopaper

Meeting Minutes


2011.02.24
Discussion:

  • Team organization
    caption
  • Brain storming
    • paper made by bacteria with add-ons such as colors, fragrance, etc.
    • "light up" the plants for replacing lamp posts.



2011.03.04
Discussion:

  • Team advisory
  • Brain storming
    • Add-ons: colorful cellulose which produced by bacteria such as beta-carotene
    • information exchange with iGEM 2009 Cambridge team




2011.03.14
Discussion:

  • Task Allocation
  • Brain storming
    • Avatar - "light up" the plants by transfecting symbiotic bacteria which cloned into fluorescence gene
    • Eco-friendly warmer - biotic thermal pad



2011.03.23
Discussion:

    • Project : paperia
    • Option 1 : Culture bacteria which has pigment gene
    • Option 2 : Cellulose-producing bacteria secrete pigment into the medium



2011.03.24
Discussion:

  • Exp. procedure:
    • cloning of cellulose gene’s CDS
    • the product should operate within E. coli.



2011.06.22
Discussion:

  • Due to some unforseen reason, the team decided to change their project.
  • New project: Biojenny

         -economical and humane way to produce paper in large quantities.
         -yeast to be our host



2011.07.01
Discussion:

  • Freeze > grin > genome DNA isolation > Cloning = silk protein gene



2011.07.09
Discussion:

  • the connections between 3 silk proteins : Fibl Fibh P25
  • major proteins : H-chain, L-chain, P25



2011.07.15
Discussion:

  • Due to limited resources and techniques required, the team decided to switch back to the previous project. Paper making !
  • However it would be modified to be more innovative and creative.



2011.07.18
Discussion:

  • Latest project : Photo paper
  • cyanobacteria is designed as the host, cellulose made up of the glucose produced by cyanobacteria could be one of the main attraction of the project.



2011.07.23
Discussion:

  • system modification to overcome the problems arises during preliminary round
  • Biobricks from Tokyo 2010 team will be utilized
    • regulator promoter in order to regulate the secretion of cellulose to solve the aggregation of the bacteria




2011.09.15

Genome miniprep
Gluconacetobacter hansenii



2011.09.18

Gel/PCR DNA extraction
