We enabled our bugs to degrade hydrocarbons using standard biological parts, also called BioBricks. These are nucleic acid-encoded molecular biological functions, along with the associated information defining and describing the parts. You can find more information about this on the website of The BioBricks Foundation.

Using these molecules any synthetic biologist or biological engineer can program living organisms. All our parts are available to anyone for free via MIT's Registry of Standard Biological Parts.

After designing the parts, we operated them in E. coli cells. The methods we used are described on the Characterization page.
