We Propose A Reusable Biological Switch

- We propose a reusable biological switch that is capable of toggling between on and off states within a reasonable amount of time. To accomplish this, we will use biologically modified Escherichia coli transformed with a bi-stable switch-containing plasmid.

Toggling between these two states is controlled by the presence of specific chemical inducers [16]. The two states in our proposed design will be light production (ON) and the absence of light production (OFF)....   [tags: Incandescent light bulb, Compact fluorescent lamp]
