All BioBricks, besides those detailed below, were made and characterised solely by the undergraduate students themselves.

We would like to particularly thank:

Lina Gasiūnaitė for:

-Design of BioBricks: BBa_K1122001; BBa_K1122003; BBa_K1122004; BBa_K1122005; BBa_K1122006; BBa_K1122007; BBa_K1122008; BBa_K1122009; BBa_K1122010; BBa_K1122011; BBa_K1122012;

-Creation and characterisation of BioBricks: BBa_K1122001 and BBa_K1122003 to BBa_K1122008;

-BioBricks BBa_K1122001 and BBa_K1122003 to BBa_K1122008 were submitted as part of Edinburgh iGEM 2013 entry and were used for creation of Fur box assemblies which aimed to test iron induced repression of gene expression;
