  1. Would any of your project ideas raise safety issues in terms of:
    • researcher safety,  NONE
    • public safety, or  NONE
    • environmental safety?  NONE
  2. Is there a local biosafety group, committee, or review board at your institution?  YES
  3. What does your local biosafety group think about your project? THEY FIND IT SAFE - REGULAR LAB STRAIN ECOLI AND GFP
  4. Do any of the new BioBrick parts that you made this year raise any safety issues?  NO
    • If yes, did you document these issues in the Registry? N/A
