Depositor Comments

This construct has attB and attP sites (BP).

The DNA data register in BP and LR states consist of a constitutive promoter (BBa_J23119) flanked by BP or LR recombination sites positioned in opposite orientation, resulting in DNA inversion when recombined (Figs 1 & 2 and Figs S1E and
S1F). A Rrnp T1 terminator (BBa_J61048) was added in reverse orientation upstream of
the promoter to prevent transcriptional read-through in the opposite orientation, so that in each state, only one fluorescent protein is visibly expressed. On each side of the recombination target, we cloned superfolder GFP and mKate2 under translational
control of measured strong RBSs (BIOFAB pilot C-dog project
