Welcome to Team UCAS-China!


Our project aims to produce revolutionarily high-resolution colored pictures, with a foundation of precise expression regulation of multiple genes.

In this project, we will create a engineered E-coli species. With 3 light signal of different wavelength as input, the system can accurately express 3 different genes examplified by bio-pigments. Dry lab methods, mathemetic models and hardware will be employed to enable artists to produce pieces with reliable living materials, whose color can vary with environment. Moreover, the regulation of several genes at the same time exhibits great potential for more applications, just like sound-color synesthesia. Memory circuit is also considered.
