• BioModeling Group: Programming and Modeling a Cell

    This is a new community group project focusing on synthetic biology and gene network modeling. We want to explore the intersection between programming, biology, and network systems through: 1. simulating gene regulatory networks in a program (in silico) 2. gathering experimental data of the same gene network inserted into bacteria (in vivo) Our objective is to first tinker and see if the regulation we see matches what we saw on the computer. Later on, we hope to validate previous experiments and possibly even improve them. Our current tentative name is the BioModeling Group. We meet about every two weeks on Thursday, 6:30-7:30, at SoundBio Lab. We are in testing phase. If you are not familiar with standard biological lab techniques like micropipetting, contact Yoshi after RVSPing. SoundBio Lab Tinkerer Membership or above is required to attend after your first meeting. Header image by Laura Symul (http://www.illustratedscience.net/)

    SoundBio Lab

    We are designing a science project that would address the concerns of urban gardeners in the Seattle P-Patch program (community gardens). There are 1,200 gardens among the 90+ gardens and they donate over 17 tons of fresh produce to the food banks! The gardeners are interested in quality composting, microbial diversity and soil borne fungal diseases. Of course, all of these topics relate to improving the overall quality of our precious soil. We want to use Sound Bio participants, the Lab, and perhaps some of the community gardeners in a project that would address at least one of their main concerns. This is where you come in. We meet weekly and review a scientific article related to a topic of concern for the urban gardeners. This review process gives us the background to create a well-designed project for implementation. If you could meet at least three weeks out of four, we would benefit from a richer set of ideas and skill sets. Contact Orlando ([masked]) with questions
