Welcome to Edinburgh's iGEM2007 Wiki

Our wiki describes the two projects we have undertaken this summer, and the team responsible for their innovation. Follow the links below to find out about the University of Edinburgh iGEM2007 team and the two projects we undertook.

The Projects!

We are currently working on two projects:

Division PoPper Self Flavouring Yoghurt
http://2007.igem.org/wiki/images/6/64/Edinburgh_DivisionPic.jpg http://2007.igem.org/wiki/images/9/97/Edinburgh_Yogurt.jpg
We designed a signal generator device that produces an output in the form of PoPS pulses each time a bacteria undergoes cell division. Therefore it may trigger actions as a function of cell replication. We aimed to develop flavour and colour biosynthesis pathways for potential use in 'self flavouring yoghurt' & a plasmid which would enable biobrick expression in gram positive bacteria
