Happy new year, everyone! Having finished up our summer project and presented at the iGEM Giant Jamboree last November in Boston, MA, the Pitt iGEM Team is proud to announce we won a silver medal for our work.
In short, we constructed five new genetic vectors and submitted these to the iGEM Registry of Standard Biologic Parts. Unfortunately, we were unable to find a protocol to transfer our genes into P. acnes. However, thanks to our statistical design of experiments, we used far less materials than we would have used otherwise, and we have a lot of information to potentially carry the work forward next year.
You can see all our materials for the iGEM Competition at the following pages:
Thanks again for your support of our project.
