Project Description

The Grenoble iGEM team intends to build an ultra sensitive detector. The goal is to produce a detector which can greatly amplify an extremely low input signal. It consists of three modules:

  1. the first gets the signal
  2. the second amplifies it
  3. the third sends the output

The detection module is a membrane receptor that once activated by a biomolecule actuates an amplification loop. The loop enhances the cell response efficiency.
The amplification system contains a genetic feed forward loop. It acts as a biologic loud filter aiming at reducing false positive outputs. Once amplified and filtered the signal is transmitted to the neighboring bacteria. In this way a noticeable fluorescent emission is generated.
