In previous iGEM projects related to formaldehyde, several problems still need to improve, such as 1) the present sensing threshold of formaldehyde concentration (~ 10 ppm) is far upper beyond the environment-protecting standard (~ 0.1 ppm); 2) the degrading system seems to work unstably, although some survival or duration after formaldehyde addition was observed. Our project is aiming to construct a more sensitive and effective E. coli-based system for detecting and further degrading formaldehyde in environments, basing on current systems (already registered as BioBrick parts). </p> </p> <!-- NewPP limit report CPU time usage: 0.005 seconds Real time usage: 0.006 seconds Preprocessor visited node count: 9/1000000 Preprocessor generated node count: 46/1000000 Post‐expand include size: 41/2097152 bytes Template argument size: 0/2097152 bytes Highest expansion depth: 2/40 Expensive parser function count: 0/100 --> <!-- Saved in parser cache with key 2018_igem_org:pcache:idhash:9637-0!*!*!*!*!*!* and timestamp 20180920110014 and revision id 152256 --> </div> <div class="visualClear"></div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </html>
