Pages for the two biobricks that we've submitted, why we had to make them, improvements, characterisation, link to them in the registry

The PyeaR promoter was first put into the BioBrick standard by the University of Edinburgh’s 2009 iGEM team. We used this promoter and connected it to a GFP BioBrick to create a BioBrick that expresses GFP in response to levels of nitrite. We also connected the promoter to the LacZ gene which codes for β -galactosidase. This was used in a Miller assay, an experiment that is used to characterise a repressors response to inducer.

The constitutive RFP was expressed via an unmodified BioBrick from the parts registry.
