Glowing Plant: Natural Lighting without Electricity


We live in an unsustainable world, using resources faster than we can replenish them and pushing the earth beyond it's fragile limits. Nature shows us a better way, as biology is sustainable, so we can harness genetic engineering to create better solutions.

The glowing plant inspires hope in a more sustainable future and educates people about this wonderful and mis-understood technology. We make our plant using the tools of synthetic biology, using a design print transform cycle. We design our DNA sequences on a computer using special Biocad software, then we make the DNA using DNA laser printing before using a Gene Gun to insert the DNA into our plant.
