Mexico UNAM-Genomics

Our major collaborators on this project were Mexico UNAM-Genomics, who have been absolute stars this summer and supplied us with half the things this project needed to actually work in any way.

In late June it became apparent that Mexico were doing exactly the same project on bacterial light communication as we were. And when I say exactly, I mean down to each individual biobrick. Of course, we first panicked, then decided, since we were never going to complete this project ourselves, that we should contact them. This we did, and immediately we arranged a Skype conference. Eventually we split tasks according to what Mexico had already had synthesised, i.e. YFP, LovTap and CcaS.
