The goal of our project is to make a bacterial society that follows Pareto's principle as an ant society does.
On the other word, we try to construct a bacterial system which takes "balanced differentiation".(See more.)
1. Differentiation => 2. Worker Removal
3. Dedifferentiation => 4.Redifferentiation
Bistability and cell-cell communication are necessary to realize our model of "Balanced differentiation". (See more.)
1．Differentiation generated by mutual-inhibition circuit.
2．Cell-cell communication .
The genetic circuit in this project consisted of the new parts as well as BioBrick parts. (See more.)
The new parts of this year are here!!
Our model has been sophisticated through successive combinations of wet and dry approaches. (See more.)
Using the data from wet experiments,the guideline for the design of the model was established
