Project Abstract and Title

Project Title: Anti the Cold - YeasTherm©
Project Abstract: In Taiwan, fish farmers lose a large amount of fish because temperature falls dramatically when cold current comes in winter. Of course, fish farmers try to prevent fish from death dying; however, the current methods do not work well. Moreover, they cause damage to the environment. In 2013 iGEM competition, NTU-Taiwan team tries to make a bio-heating device. We transform the UCP (uncoupling protein) or AOX (alternative oxidase) gene into yeast and E.coli. UCP and AOX are thermogenins which can produce heat by interacting with the electron transport chain. By designing the gene circuit, we want to well control the power of the bio-heating device. In addition, we want to simulate the pound environment in reality by computer and the test results after using our device in low temperature.
