Topic of a minilab starting on June 4, 2016.
Until June 26 minilabs take place on Saturdays and Sundays. Between June 28 and August 31 minilabs will take place Tuesday through Sunday.
Green fluorescent proteins (GFP) are naturally present in many marine organisms, and they were extracted for the first time from the Aequorea victoria jellyfish. If we direct a stream of UV light at the protein, we’ll see it is fluorescent - it will shine in green. The GFP is produced by the gfp gene, which can be quite easily implanted in other organisms. Thanks to this, we have already obtained fluorescent bacteria, fungi, plants, flies and even mice. The discovery of the GFP in 2008 was awarded with the Nobel Prize, received by Martin Chalfie, Osamu Shimomura and Roger Y. Tsien. During our classes you will extract the GFP from a bacterium.
