'''Tuning Our System'''

For tuning our system, we hope to make it more effective by increasing the efficiency of the ribosome binding site. The RBS controls the accuracy and efficiency with which the translation of mRNA begins. Therefore, we hope to use this important variable to tune our system.

<!-- Describe summarize how you measured GFP intensities, plotted charts in MatLab, make a curve of best fit, and tried to determine the maximum rate of GFP production.

If you didn't get a nice peak, explain how your image analysis might be changed to improve your outcome. -->

Testing: Modeling and GFP Imaging


A LAC SWITCH MODEL
We used a previously published synthetic switch, developed by Ceroni et al., to understand how our system could potentially be modeled and simulated.


AN INTERACTIVE MODEL
We used a model of the natural Lac operon to understand how changing the parameter values changes the behavior of the system.


COLLECTING EMPIRICAL VALUES TO IMPROVE THE MODEL
We explored how one technique, imaging via microscopy could be used to determine the production rate of an output protein, in this case GFP in yeast, could be used to determine a "real" value for maximum GFP production rate under our own laboratory conditions.



Ideally, the GFP production rate measured by this method could be entered as a value for [which parameter] in the Ceroni et al. model.
