seplute has been helping the Lichen kids (frequent Technarium Biolab goers) to hack some fluorescent bacteria.

The original plan was to use YFP (yellow fluorescent protein) but the plasmid carrying it did not have much luck being transported to Technarium (seplute’s bad!), so the bacteria ended up with GFP (green fluorescent protein) instead!

Look for some fluorescent Petri art soon too!  😈
