Contents

Schedule

  • 1st December, 2014 : Submit final draft of Conformational Switching paper to Marco
  • 22nd November, 2014  : Finish first draft of Conformational Switching paper
  • 8th November, 2014 : Finalise results, create plots
  • 1st November, 2014 : Finalise plan for experiments and collect preliminary data

Todo

  • Outline by 8th November
  • Mount existing container on shaker

Experiments

  • Setting of the speed for experiments
    • Result: self-assembly time distribution for each speed; use in experiments speed with lowest average time to completion + 2 std. dev.
  • Test to verify role of seed
    • Passive components, no seed
    • Passive components, AND seed

Particulars of experiments (10 trials each)

  • Run each experiment till self-assembly of one target structure using passive components AND seed
    • Use different speeds starting from lowest speed = when components start to move and increment speed by 25 till target structure breaks.
  • Assembly of one target structure (Data to be collected: number of individual components, number of compatible substructures, number of incompatible substructures, number of targets)
    • All components are seeds
    • Passive components, no seed
    • Passive components, AND seed
  • Assembly of two target structures (Data to be collected: number of individual components, number of compatible substructures, number of incompatible substructures, number of targets)
    • All components are seeds
    • Passive components, no seed
    • Passive components, AND seed
  • Video recording of experiments, probably one frame every seconds.
  • Results to show
    • Time evolution of self-assembly
    • Conf switch eliminates incompatible structures
