===Circuit project ideas:===
 
-
* Genetic Circuit basics: http://www.princeton.edu/~rweiss/bio-programming/weiss-natural-computing-2003.pdf
 
-
====Sequential cell color change====
 
-
*ex. Green->Red->Yellow->repeat.
 
-
*System: organic layer & bacterial aquatic layer in liquid form.  Shake to combine organic layer w/ bacterial aquatic layer -> initiate color change.
 
-
*Structure: Messenger protein downstream of color protein, downstream of organic molecule-activated promoter
 
-
 
-
=====Components=====
 
-
* Organic compound: hydrophobic, heavy (won't evaporate), is recognized by cell
 
-
* Recognition compound(s): recognize organic compound and synthesize/activate something that activates promoter
 
-
* Promoter: probably lac
 
-
* Color proteins
 
-
 
-
=====Circuit=====
 
-
 
-
O -> A
 
-
 
-
A+B -> C, GFP
 
-
 
-
A+C -> B, YFP
 
-
 
-
 
-
*Degradation tags on A, B, C, GFP, YFP, strongest on A, weakest on B and C.
 
-
*Intended result: shake once: GFP, shake again: YFP, shake again, GFP, etc.
 
-
 
-
=====Options:=====
 
-
*Bioluminescense : proteins like "M-Cherry" instead of flourescent proteins...
 
-
*Rather than shake, stir by '''thermal convection''' or a '''magnetic stirrer'''

-
(Peking U did something like this--sequential color change--but UV activated. MIT team idea: bacterial lava lamp?)
