Congratulations to the Imperial College London 2016 iGEM team for using Small Transcription Activating RNAs (STARs) regulators in their project – ecolibrium! Their project looks at developing a framework and new tools for engineering co-cultures of bacteria. We’re honored that they choose to use STARs and the power of RNA for their project. Check out their project on their website and the BioBrick part entries for the AD1 STAR system (STAR and anti-STAR), which they nominated for the best basic part award! Good luck and have a great time at the jamboree! To learn more about STARs check out our paper in Nature Chemical Biology.
