Your promoter and Your protein

Project overview by figure.

In the figure of our project overview, you can see your promoter and your protein there. Because of that the main purpose of our project is provide a speedy and useful tool for everyone who is doing synthetic biology, we designed a flexible tool which can applicative in different needs. The explanation of your promoter and your protein is as below:

  • Your promoter

Here you can change your own promoter which you are interesting. This part can used to measure the quantitative and locations of mRNA induced by different types or different strength promoter. With this novel method, we can faster and more understanding the relationship between promoters and mRNA transcription.

  • Your protein

Here you can also change your own protein and fusion with our specific peptide adaptor. Then you can use the novel speedy protein reporter in our SpeedyBac to know the localization of different proteins and the influence of translation by different situations.


Our project can achieve several benefits and have several applications as below:

  • Our SpeedyBac can be used to measure the gene expression in single cell, it help us to avoid the influence from population.
  • Users can change their own promoters and proteins easily and measure them faster than traditional methods.
  • With our Speedy switch, we can stop the gene expression at transcription, so we can study the roles of mRNA in gene expression more easily.
  • Comparison with the traditional methods of measuring gene expression, our SpeedyBac provide a faster and more flexible way in study the gene expression and interaction between different biological parts in vivo.
