*'''[[User:Robert Ovadia|Robert]] 12:19, 28 March 2009 (EDT)''': I think it'd be cool to do all three of the projects as what they described as their plan to "Save the World." If we simplify each project to do a specific task but make it simple, I think it's possible. EX: If we engineer a simple PS-related pathway in cyano with a few genes; engineer a simple way to degrade plastics consisting of two or three genes (maybe in yeast?); and the same concept with environmental estrogens (in E.coli?); we could show our team was very flexible in designing and working with almost any previously engineered strain in the registry! The only down fall I see is if working with more than one strain is not allowable for iGEM, then nevermind! I don't recall any team using more than one strain for their project but anyways, I just wanted to know what you guys thought.
