Taxi.Coli: Smart Drug Delivery iGEM EPFL


Cell Surface display

Characterization/Functional Assays
Inoculation of all our constructs and controls (competent cells, INP-Strepta-igem, INP-Strepta-dead, INP-Strepta-alive, BBa_K523013, YFP control, GFP control) needed for the confocal microscopy.


PCR of MMP9 insert and GelE insert
-I did the PCR of the MMP9 and the gelE insert which worked. I then purified it which gave me concentrations around 100ng/ul.

DpnI digest of MMP2 insert and MMP2 Backbone
-After the PCR of the previous days I digested both the MMP2 insert and Backbone for the Gibson Assembly.

Gibson assembly for the MMP2+GFP construct
-After the digest I did a Gibson assembly of the construct that contains the MMP2 gelatinase and superfolded GFP whose combined expression is induced by arabinose.

Transformation of cells with the Cad-GFP Gibson Assembly Product (Sensing construct)
-I transformed Cells with one cad-sensing Construct. They effectively grew, meaning that they did contain some sort of resistance. This indicated that the gibson had worked.
