Design Notes

PstI site within the mCherry sequence - has to be assembled using BioBrick assembly in such an order that any successive digestions will not require PstI, otherwise the mCherry sequence will be cut as well as the site of interest. Alternatively, the assembly can be performed using non-standard BioBrick assembly.
