Project

We started by brainstorming topics that we could do further research on, and came up with topics including toxic metals, environmental estrogens (detergents, plastics (BPA), fertilizers, pesticides), hormones, biofilters, and biofuels. Research of topics was divided among team members and was subsequently done on topics including recycling and composting, pesticides, hormones, bacteria communication, and radiation. Much of this research began by looking for wikis of previous teams who may have done their projects around these topics.

Currently we are in the process of deciding which path to pursue. The majority of our proposed topics fall under the Food and Energy and Environment tracks, so we most likely will not deviate from those tracks for our final project. Right now we are also looking at conducting our experiments with yeast as opposed to E. coli and the possibility of conducting the same set of experiments with both organisms to study the differences.
