Through applying concepts of directed evolution, this MQP explores the creation and viability of a system called Bacterial Non-Continuous Evolution (BaNCE). Employing the use of three plasmids, this system aims to evolve a protein by linking mutations in a gene of interest to cell survivability. Alongside this research, with the help of the WPI marketing department, a genre study of institutional press releases was conducted to understand how research, such as BaNCE, can be communicated and marketed to outside readers.
