GSU & SWJT iGEM
Everyone decided their groups.
Learned the plan and read articles generally to know the current progress.
Came up with the general ideas to achieve bleaching resistance.(1)
Discussed the ways to operate, such as CRISPR and iRNA. But Dr. Brewer analyzed their strength and weakness. The two ways are not suitable for this project.(1)
Learned and discussed the difference between Orthologous gene and Paralogous gene in phylogenetic trees.(1)(2)
Discussed the different role of phylogenetic trees in screening down and up regulation genes.
Need read more papers to decide up or down one gene to achieve the goal
Found many websites and papers about HSF types and promoter analysis (HSEAT). Prepared some A type HSF organisms to do BLAST. (1)(2)
After the discussion with Professor Zhou, we found it’s the wrong direction! We need to find HSP types.
Discuss what kinds of the symbiodium clades that we are cultured to ensure the genome database.(3)
Introduced the IGEM calendar and divided the detailed work.
Was in HSP problems. It’s hard to find papers about it.
Build a phylogenetic tree about heat shock protein to see the relationships.(1)
Prepared human practice.
