Description of project:

We are attempting to develop a testing kit for environmental estrogens using yeast that contain the human estrogen receptor as described in this paper.

List the bibliography.

Draw a diagram how the YES assay works.

Contributors: Avery Louie at Olin College RISD Yuyu and Mara Sara Wylie

To Do List before January 23rd grow week!

  1. read up on growing yeast--particularly home brewing kits
  2. read up on how to prepare water samples for testing. --Bisphenol A samples from water bottle --water from tap --water with Phthalates --what other samples could we test?
  3. develop concepts for designing home testing kits
  4. develop concept for gallery show
