Metal Binding and Sensing Parts

Every year, a number of iGEM teams complete a variety of biosensors and bioremediation projects that involve metal-binding and metal-sensing. Their focus may be on several pollutants or just one. iGEM teams have worked with metals like nickel, mercury, lead, arsenic, copper, amongst others.

We've put together a collection of projects and DNA parts that are responsible for both metal binding and metal sensing.
