    About This Project

    We are engineering two E. coli strains to function as tools for the environmental bioremediation of volatile organic compounds. The first biological part is designed to breakdown the pollutant dichloroacetate, and the second biological part is designed to detect and degrade the toxic compound dichloromethane. Our hypothesis is that when our designed biological parts are tested in the wet lab that they will be capable of degrading their respective contaminants.
