We highlighted 3 levels of [[Team:ETH_Zurich/expresults#Quorum_Sensing|crosstalk]] between Las, Lux and Rhl quorum sensing systems and fully quantitatively characterized all possible combinations of  crosstalk at these three levels.

[[Team:ETH_Zurich/expresults#Riboregulators|We quantitatively characterized]] leakiness of the three quorum sensing systems (Las, Lux and Rhl). We have designed a new BioBrick for reducing leakiness of these systems and demonstrated its efficiency for the ''lux'' system, which is the most leaky of the three. We improved the signal over noise ratio for this promoter by a factor of 6 while reducing the basal expression by a factor of 60.
