Home The Team E. nigma Project Parts Submitted to the Registry Notebook

The E. nigma Project relies on the ability of one cell to communicate with another cell through distance in the form of a chemical signal. Several intercellular communication systems exist in nature. The cellular communications systems used in our project were quorum sensing systems found in the bacterial species Vibrio fischeri, E. coli, and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Portions of these communications systems were used in our XOR logic gate designs and constructs.
