Our team created 28 new parts and contributed to 2 existing parts on the registry. The parts were designed to be modular in order to construct our genetic circuits using Golden Gate assembly. We created a chlorophyll capture and degradation part collection, and improved an RFP-flipper part that can convert pSB1C3, pSB1A3, and pSB1K3 into Golden Gate destination vectors. Our most notable part that we characterized and validated was 6GIX, a water soluble chlorophyll-binding protein new to the registry.
