Project Details

Project 1:

We have the idea of getting the human ABCA1 cDNA and transfected into the human macrophage and made it sensitive to cholesterol and over expressed it when necessary and aim to reduce the blood plague problem.

Project 2

Part 2

 No more electricity, No more pollution; The Midnight Apollo! 
 In Taipei, on average 768 mega watt of electricity for streetlamp was consumed every night (Department Public 

works, Taipei City government). It is beyond our imagination how much energy was consumed for the whole world. In Taiwan there are 9 power stations generated by coal, and produce 269.1 million tons of CO2 every year (based on data from CARMA), Power stations are major causes for global warming. Therefore, we would like to create” biolight” that can reduce CO2 generation and attenuate degree of global warming.

 We plan to create a new organism that doesn’t need electricity and cause no pollution, we named “The Midnight Apollo”. “The Midnight Apollo” will be turned on when surrounding area turns dark and will be turned off automatically when the environment is bright. The idea is based on two systems, Cph8 and aeoquorin/GFP. The Cph8 is regulated by the visible light that can activate protein translation of an illuminating system. This illuminating system use aeoquorin/GFP to light up the environment. 
 We hope The Midnight Apollo could be applied in producing energy-saved Bio-streetlamp, emergency Biolighting, or Biosearchlight.
