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 three functions requiered to fight against canker. The three modules tested were Chemotaxis, Binding and Fungicides. The verifications of our genetic constructions were successful (PCR, Migration on an agarose gel and Sequencing). We could then proceed to specific test of the modules: capillary test, chitin beads test or fungicide tests.</p>

Once these results obtained, we decided to move on to the next step: in order to get closer to our final objective, the three genetic modules have to be assembled and to be tested in <b>model plants</b>. In the short time left that we had, these tests were only performed with the antifungal module, but the results were very encouraging (See <a href="http://2014.igem.org/Team:Toulouse/Result/experimental-results">3. In planta tests with SubtiTree</a> in the Fungicides module).

However, SubtiTree's spreading must be controlled, fungicide production regulated, and tests of the whole system performed. In a nutshell, we still have a lot of things to do even if we did our best during the whole summer!</p>
