DTU iGEM team 2011 - 1

The 2011 team won both a Gold Medal and a Special Mention for Best Wiki for their project 

The Universal Tool for Gene Silencing

Project Description

We have investigated a novel type of RNA regulation based on the chitobiose system, where the inhibition caused by a small RNA is relieved by another small RNA called trap-RNA. We explore the possibility of using the system to uniquely target and repress any gene of interest, potentially providing unprecedented specificity and control of gene silencing. Furthermore we constructed araBAD promoters with varying promoter activities using synthetic promoter libraries.
