I finally submitted my PhD thesis. The viva should hopefully take place quite soon.

Therefor this might well be the last entry on this blog (not that here had been much activity in the first place).

Talk by Hans Othmer

Writing about web page http://www.math.umn.edu/~othmer/

Just a quick note. Talk was on drosophila development / spatial patterning. Muss mal durch die Artikel auf der Homepage blaettern.

Might be handy for quick reports. A quick tutorial on how to structure your 5min story.

New rapid transit bus to Coventry city centre

According to an email sent around in the maths department today there are plans for a new bus service to Covntry city centre. Since that bus is supposed to run through the maths’ rose beds people here a not over enthusiastic. I for my part find at least the idea of a proper bus connection to coventry very reasonable. It might not have to be accomplished with vehicles which try to compete with the noise levels of a diesel train engine.

I opt for either a tunnel or an underground railway. Or, even better, just cut off earlsdon from the already running bus service to coventry. That should reduce travel time from 30min down to not more than 15min.

St. Michael help us against the terrorists!

Almighty God we pray that our Patron St. Michael the Archangel will Defend us in battle.
Be our protection against wickedness and the snares of the devil;
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray;
And do thou, O Prince of the heavenly host,
By thy power of God, thrust into hell Satan and all evil spirits
Who wander through the world
For the ruin of Souls.

Synthetic Biology talks II

Follow-up to Synthetic Biology from Schreibfaul in Warwick

Title: "Programming bacteria: wiring synthetic sensors and circuits to heterologous outputs"

talk by Christopher Voigt

Three systems in E.Coli:

  1. Light Sensor Nature 2005
  2. Heat Sensor
  3. Logic Gate. in progress. previous Leiber Science2002

Programming Bacteria:

  • Competition 6 month time limit. iGEM Genetic Engineering Competition
  • a national student competition

One: Light Sensor:

  • Bacterial Photography. Change gene expression on light.
  • on known photoreceptors in E.coli. just in other organisms.
  • Phytochromes in Cyanobacteria, Arabidopsis.
  • kinase that is activated on light induction
  • compine e.coli osmotic shock sensor with cph1, ouput lacZ

Two: Bacterial Thermometer:

  • Heat shock and Cold shock repsonse promoters
  • Cold: Hypb, ansb, cspa_x promoter
  • Heat: htpG

Synthetic Logic (AND gate):

  • Examples of other gates in ecoli, yeast and mammal cells
