The Green Fluorescent Protein (GFP), which is responsible for bioluminescence in the jellyfish Aequorea victoria, is used extensively in all areas of science. Many organisms have been transformed with the GFP gene. It has proven to be so useful that scientists have mutated it to produce Blue Fluorescent Protein (BFP). In this simple experiment, students will transform bacteria either with GFP, BFP or both! For 10 lab groups, complete in 50 minutes and grow overnight. Kit includes BactoBeads™, plasmid DNA, IPTG, ampicillin, transformation solution, ReadyPour™* Agar, Luria broth, petri dishes, sterile pipets, loops, and instructions. Requires waterbath, 98.6° F (37° C) incubation oven, microwave or hot plate, long wave UV lamp (not included). Some components require refrigeration and freezer storage.
