Figure 1

  • (a) normal e. coli (depict chemical inputs and outputs)
  • (b) final eau d’e coli system (depict chemical inputs and outputs)

Figure 1 (pdf)

Figure 2

Device depictions (show one or two devices at the parts level, perhaps also show a device transfer function and also whatever the most relevant device data is, perhaps the GC data)

Figure 2 (pdf)

Figure 3

GC data (banana total synthesis, wintergreen total synthesis, banana with precursor, wintergreen with precursor)

Figure 4

Smell test data (show photo of smell test in action and also bar graphs of results)

Jamboree smell test data (xls)

Bar graph of smell test results (pdf)

Figure 5

Growth phase control (parts and device level depiction)

Figure 5 (pdf)

  • verify the part numbers of the devices for which there is GC data ...

J45993 vs J45992 and J45199 vs J45219

Figure 6

Show data with growth-phase control of FP output

  • ask Barry to make pretty figure for this data

Figure 7

Show GC data from banana time course

Figure S1

Restrospective project timeline. How long did each step take? [from this we can compute how we could do such work faster. We’ll want to work the pace of work into both the introduction and discussion].

Figure S2

Show GC data here (could have chromatograms)? GC data for IK cells versus normal E. coli; mint scented bacteria versus IK cells.


Paper demonstrating successful transfer of ATF1 into E. coli:


"The odor threshold of a compound is the lowest concentration at which its smell can be detected." Isoamyl acetate's odor threshold listed here:


Methyl salicylate's odor threshold listed here:
