“I ‘heart’ bio”

You’re never too old for glow-in-the-dark. Ask AP biology students in Jeff Newton’s class, who recently obtained a glow-in-the-dark gene from a deep-sea jellyfish and, using a technique called genetic transformation, inserted this gene into the DNA of E.coli bacteria. Then, they grew the bacteria on special plates to see if the glow-in-the-dark property would transfer. It did! To celebrate, Mr. Newton used the transformed bacteria to paint the glow-in-the-dark message, “I ‘heart’ bio,” in petri dishes.
