Description

This is the coding region of a small antifreeze protein. It works by binding to the ice crystals as they form inside the cell, and by doing so prevents the ice crystals from enlarging and penetrating the cell membrane. We wanted to test if there would be a significant difference in the growth rate of moss, Physcomitrella patens, with the antifreeze gene, compared to the one without. This would be done at a low temperature to test the in-vivo function of the antifreeze protein.

Notes

We used codon optimization for moss so it would work better in Physcomitrella Patens.
