I’m Izzy from South Africa! I’m currently undertaking my MPhil in biotechnology at the University of Cambridge and ecstatic to engage with this incredible network. My role will be to provide support in planning and coordinating gathering data for the collection.
We have exciting news - the Research in Diagnostics DNA Collection is ready to ship!!
More coming soon on how to access that but we are now asking for your help to test the different enzyme expression cassettes and parts so we can verify that they work and also start recombining the collection in different ways.
We plan to publish all the data and protocols openly through Reclone and develop co-authored publications.
In order to get started, we need to plan how to conduct this distributed experiment, so we warmly invite you to a Reclone community meeting to discuss ideas and recruit labs who might participate.
Here is an example demonstrating the potential of distributed experiments for some inspiration: Coordinated Distributed Experiments (CDEs) Protocols
Please complete this doodle poll if you are keen to attend so we can select the best time: Brainstorm Meeting!
The meeting will be recorded and an update will be posted on the forum so don’t worry if you miss out! We will then be holding regular meetings for the community to update on progress and exchange tips and ideas.
