Recently, more and more projects for iGEM involve precise dynamic system or complex chemical compounds. These projects need minute regulation of gene expressions. However, few BioBrick parts controlling gene expression such as promoters or RBS’s are reliable, and many iGEMers choose one among these parts too carelessly.

This year, we make well-selected sets of promoters and RBS’s with wide variation of strength. These parts are evaluated strictly. We mutate a certain region of a basic part to make these sets, so their performances are reliable.

Furthermore, we make the Optimization Kit which enables you to select the most suitable parts for your project easily. This Kit will help other iGEMers create more complex and effective devises.

Besides, we give a presentation at our university and some high schools about iGEM and genetics. On that occasion we get to know how the citizens think about gene recombination by means of questionnaires and try to let them have deeper thought about it through our communication. We hope these activities will lead the society where people accept genetic engineering technology.
