DNA transformation with friends

last Thursday we performed the first set of DNA transformations with a small circle of friends, Ferenc Szalai, Attila Nemes and András Márton Juhász. this was a basic test of the lab to prove if multiple people can work in it together.

first successful DNA transformation in the new lab

Yesterday I performed the first successful DNA transformation in the new lab, set up at FabLab Budapest. The transformation was simply the pGLO gene earlier isolated at the University of Szeged, into e.coli HB 101. The green spots on the image above are the bacteria with the Green Fluorescent Protein in then.

This gives reassurance that the crude tools here in the lab can do real work :)

I’ve also summed up most of the basic protocols, ways to grow bacteria and the DNA transformation steps as well – because I always forget everything.

The bio.display project is back! A simple collection of fluorescent bacteria was exhibited at Design Terminal Budapest as part of Design Week Budapest 2013, with the subtitle ‘crossovers’. We’re also featured at the arts thread blog – yay!

bio.display presentation at Waseda University, Tokyo

Tomorrow, I’ll hold a presentation on bio.display at the Iwasaki Lab of the Center for Advanced Biomedical Sciences at Waseda University in Tokyo, at 2:30pm local time. See Iwasaki Sensei’s page on what he’s mostly up to.

a wonderful project:

bio.display presentation at this years science night

I’ll be holding a presentation about bio.display at the Budapet FabLab, during the Science Night event held in Budapest, Hungary.

bio.display featured in the news

Today the Hungarian newspaper HVG mentions bio.display in a feature about 3D printers in general, and its use in edible printing & medical applications.

blinkenlights – with bacteria & arsenic

Using the same method to create the flashing signs, the researchers engineered a simple bacterial sensor capable of detecting low levels of arsenic. In this biological sensor, decreases in the frequency of the oscillations of the cells’ blinking pattern indicate the presence and amount of the arsenic poison.
