iGEM Tips for Success
Things to think about when designing your project and experiments, as well as general safety rules.

Site Directed Mutagenesis
A molecular biology technique in which a mutation is created at a defined site in a DNA molecule.

Bacterial Standard Operating Protocols
How to prepare competent cells, transform your construct into competent cells, and express your protein from a lac promoter.

Yeast Standard Operating Protocols
How to transform your construct into yeast, obtain crude extract for SDS-PAGE, and perform GFP fixation for microscopy and fluorescence-activated cell sorting.

Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS)
A method that combines the features of gas-liquid chromatography and mass spectrometry to identify different substances within a test sample.

Beetle Transfer Experiments
Preliminary experiments to probe the efficiency of transferring yeast via beetle vector.

Yeast-Fungi Co-culture Experiments
Preliminary experiments to investigate the competitive interactions between yeast and the Bluestain Fungus.
