saclarke at MIT
I am an incoming BE graduate student working in the Endy lab this summer.
My background is in mechanical engineering and design, but not of things quite as small as BioBricks. Please forgive the questions about methods that might seem routine. I'm still trying to suss out the techniques for the line between the mundane and the not yet possible.
- 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.
