Questions

Debriefing

Today's briefing yielded the following topics:

Standard Units

It was unanimously agreed that there was a need for standardization between the proposed chassis, and that a standard unit would have to be determined.

  • The unit (for rate) proposed is the GFP per ACV (aqueous cell volume) per second.
  • The concept needs to be well-documented, and relevant information placed on the wiki.

Biofilm Formation

  • Protocols require refinement, particularly wrt the strains of E.coli used in biofilm formation.

Learn Vesicles

  • The day was spent scouring the relevant literature.
  • Doubts were raised with regard to the protocols involving mineral oil - the proposed means of vesicle formation.

Project Description

  • Needs to be ready by Wednesday, 8 August 2007.
  • Logo
  • A copy needs to be forwarded by Tuesday, 10:00 AM to both professors for approval.

Wiki

There is still significant confusion regarding the purpose of the wiki. The demonstrators suggested it be used more as a planning/organizing tool. Furthermore, the following :

  • New menu setup.
  • Status page regarding constructs used.

Scheduling

Contact with supervisors/professors

  • It was determined that a weekly report be sent to the professors outlining the week's activities and accomplishments.
  • It was also suggested that sub-project meetings with the supervisors be scheduled.
