Red Light Sensor

Chris has managed to construct what we hope is a working red light sensor. It is being sent in for sequencing today.
Minor characterisation experiment:
-Red light sensor constructed with blue-white lacZ reporter
-If activated, the red light sensor transformants should produce blue colonies
-Red light sensor containing-colonies from transformant plate streaked onto two plates
-One plate left in the light, the other left in the dark
-If the one in the light grows blue and the one in the dark doesn't, it is a good indication that the construct is working
