I am an incoming BE student working in the Endy lab until the fall. My background is in mechanical engineering and design, but not of things quite as small as BioBricks. Please forgive the naive questions about the routine procedures.
- My first project is Orthogonal cloning of clpXP system from E. coli into yeast. After background reading and conversations, my first task is primer design.
- Another possible project is the creation of a low copy number plasmid for use with BioBricks. It might be based on the F or mini-F plasmid from E. coli.
