Glow In The Dark Bacteria
Science students have been genetically modifying bacteria for National Science Week.
The group undertook the investigation in order to find ways of feeding a growing population.
They explored the use of plasmids in transforming bacteria, and were able to make the bacteria ‘glow in the dark’.
Simon Reed, Science tutor, said: “This practical is extremely fun and the end result is very rewarding. The students were particularly impressed with being able to make the bacteria glow in the dark.”
