Cambridge iGEM2012 team project
iGEM teams have characterised an array of biosensor components, but outputs are often inconsistent and, despite common assembly standards, it remains difficult to compose functional and precise biosensor circuits. The Cambridge iGEM 2012 team aims to create new standards for characterisation, validation and application of biosensors. The protocols aim to be modular in design, allowing any biosensor built to this standard and measured with low-cost instrumentation that we will prototype ourselves. Existing and novel biosensors will be adapted to use light as an output and interfaced with microcontroller electronics.
