iGEM Evry 2012 achievements

Asides from having lots of fun, meeting great people, gathering around cheese and wine and lazying around the Genopole gardens during lunch break, we also did a little bit of work. Here is a list of our achievements:

Xenopus Chassis

-We brought a new multicellular chassis to iGEM
-We submitted 28 biobricks to the registry, including the first working Xenopus biobricks
Our 12 Biobrick characterized: BBa_K812000, BBa_K812050, BBa_K812010, BBa_K812030, BBa_K81203, BBa_K812032, BBa_K812110, BBa_K812130, BBa_K812132, BBa_K812133, BBa_K812200, BBa_K812233.
-We designed a method for testing multicellular systems in Xenopus rapidly
-We provided 3 new plasmids for using this method, which include debugging tools

Hormone system

-We designed a multicellular hormonal system
-We improved the Auxin production device for use in eukaryotes
-We submitted the Tir1 auxin detection device to the registry
-We showed the first Synthetic ecosystem, with a unicellular chassis (E.coli) inside a multicellular chassis (Xenopus)


-We designed a new biobrick standard which allows one-shot coding device assembly, while still being compatible with the RFC10 standard


-We modelled a whole multicellular system using an integrated multilayered model

Human practices

-We submitted an extensive report of our conclusions about synthetic biology in vertebrates, which is the fruit of our long reflection we conducted over the summer.
