After a summer of hard work, our team is proud of the achieved results. The first step of our project was to have a <b>proof of concept</b> of the 3 functions requiered to fight against Canker. Once these results obtained, we decided to move on to next step : In order to get closer to our final objective, the 3 genetic modules have to be assembled and to be tested in <b>model plants</b>. In the short time we had, these tests were only performed with the antifungal module, but the results were very encouraging. So encouraging that we moved on to the third step of our project and think about the <b>real injection of SubtiTree in diseased trees</b>. We then considered the <b>spreading</b> problems and proposed different strategies to avoid this major issue. <b>Modeling</b> enables us to predict the growth and the lifespan of SubtiTree in Plane Trees. <br>

Well aware that we are part of the <b>iGEM Community</b>, our team also worked for this community by improving the iGEMer's Bible: the Registry of Standard Biological Parts. We improved the EcAMP BioBrick by adding a promotor, a RBS, but mainly by the addition of a STOP codon. As <i>Bacillus subtilis</i> appears to be for us an  ideal chassis, we also developed new genetic tools to facilitate its utilization. Thanks to numerous interactions with other iGEM teams, we didn't see the time flying by during this <b>amazing summer</b> !
