After researching some possible project ideas, Penn State '10 decided to focus on developing a promoter (or catalogue of promoters) which have oxygen-sensing capabilities. In addition, the team is working on novel ways to showcase these promoters and also explore large-scale applications of oxygen-detection in microbio-related industries.
