## The Results

In the boxplot below the RBS strengths for the five tested members of the Anderson family are given along with the deviations from the mean. The strengths are given relative to the community RBS BBa_B0034, which has a strength of unity (1). This relationship could be built by our characterizing the community RBS BBa_B0032 simultaneously, which is known to have a strength (or efficiency) of 0.3 relative to BBa_B0034. Therefore in the plot below, the mean value of BBa_B0032 is fixed at 0.3.

## Conclusions

We've succeeded in characterizing five memebers of the Anderson ribosome binding site family by simple culturing on a 96 well plate while measuring GFP fluorescence and biomass absorbance. Fitting the obtained data to our improved protein production model yielded RBS strengths values with negligible standard deviations.
