  • Model needs more parameters and also inclusion of ftsZ
  • Cloning strategy needs more detail

Lab Training

  • Summary of Lab team's week is on the wiki

New Brick/Modelling

  • Trying to create one or more BioBricks to upregulate Urease in order to produce more extracellular Calcium Carbonate
  • Two Bricks:
  1. Upregulate rocF
  2. Downregulate ahrC by antisense mRNA
  • A small problem is that 168 does not export Urease
  • Examined SBML shorthand for Model, still needs more parameters
  • No cloning strategy as of yet

Next week

  • We our on our own in terms of orgaisation, cannot use small meeting room as base, cannot be in CBCB or lab without Neil or Wendy

  1. Quorum sensing
  2. Glue/Lysis

  • Insert into pSB1AT3 in front of RFP

Testing on concrete

  • Would be nice to do some mechanical modelling/testing on concrete

Gibson Cloning

  • Advisors/Wendy will sort out
  • Steven needs to have a look at creating software to design primers for it
  • Jannetta could turn this into a web service


  • Will go on Thursday night as better for getting acclimatised
  • Fly out on 4th, return on 8th (arrival may actually be on 9th)
