  1 2 3
Molecular biology techniques to evolve and select specific functions of interest (site directed mutagenesis, MAGE, SELEX, phage display, make and screen fosmid libraries for novel enzymes, …)
Build biosensor to detect DNA damage / stress response; use to look at water quality
Engineer plant cells to differentiate under a light sensitive promoter - grow your own chair from a tub full of plant cells and a laser
Build hardware / lab robot to automate techniques to evolve and select specific functions of interest (site directed mutagenesis, MAGE, SELEX, phage display, make and screen fosmid libraries for novel enzymes, …)
Growing things on a 3D printed surface with technology similar to peachy printer (e.g. using a photoactivatable gel, that traps cells)
Engineer resveratrol pathway into yogurt / E. coli / yeast (also useful for tons of other biochemicals)
3D pattern formation toolkit - make 3D structures out of cellulose, silica, agar,...
Making vegan ‘cheese;’ express casein protein in yeast; show that it can be cleaved using rennet (chymosin)
Light switchable tRNA / nucleotides - program cells by flashing light at them to synthesize new genes
Structural colors - create photonic crystals out of DNA origami or proteins, matched to a specific wavelength of light
