Design and quantification of a tissue type specific genetic circuit in plants
Synthetic biologists aim to rationally design genetic circuits and utilize plant platforms to photosynthetically drive, self-sustainable circuits. Although plants are excellent platforms, issues and unpredictability arise from the innate complexity of multicellularity. The ability to quantitatively control gene expression within specific cell types can address some issues arising from multicellularity. In my research, I developed a genetic circuit with the ability to induce and quantitatively control expression in Arabidopsis thaliana root epidermal cells. The circuit design uses an externally ...
