Did lit research today concerning pathway to use for UV sensor. Determined that photoreactivation pathway (phr gene) would work best, as this gene is the main mechanism for the constant repair of UV damage (fixes T-T bridges).

We need to find the promoter(s) for this gene to use as the basis to start our own pathway.

Possibility for generated pigment: lycopene genes (this has already been done with E. coli) or other colors provided by guidance of professors...
