Welcome to UGA-Georgia iGEM 2015!
We have four exciting projects presented below!
Project1- To create a library of Ribosome Binding Site (RBS) sequences for varying protein expression level in M. maripaludis
Achievement1- Experimentally characterized 13 archaeal RBS mutants
Project2- Establish the reproducibility, reliability and accessibility of our fluorescent measurements
Achievement2- Created an Archaeal Collaboration Study joined by 9 iGEM teams to obtain a community data for in-depth analysis.
Project3- Determine whether expression levels predicted for bacterial models would apply to Archaea
Achievement3- No correlation observed between predicted expression levels by UTR designer and our experimental results.
Project4- Model production of geraniol and biomass
Achievement4- In silico modeled our part BBa_K1138000 in the context of flux balance analysis for improved geraniol production.
