Transformation Phase I Training BACTERIAL TRANSFORMATION

What do we see here? Living organisms (bacteria) expressing a trait (fluorescence) on a petri dish. How did someone create this picture? They used “normal” bacteria (can’t see with naked eye) and insrted genetic instructions for the production of fluorescent proteins. While this is fun, pretty, etc., there are serious scientific endeavors that utilize not only the powerful technique of transformation, but the application of fluorescent proteins. Through this protocol, students will become genetic engineers--
