Life play (the bright side of genetic engineering)

MON 08.10.2018 (19:00) // LECTURE, WORKSHOP
Top Space: Schillerpromenade 4, 12049 Berlin

The lecture aims to demystify genetic engineering and bring into attention the future implications of such technology. A hands-on workshop follows, where participants will engineer a fluorescent gene (GFP) into gut bacteria (E. coli). Practically, we will take a gene that exists in jelly fish and insert it into the genome of E. coli (bacteria in your guts). Consequently, the genetically modified E. coli will become fluorescent, i.e., it will glow when UV light is shone upon it (like in the image above). Read More

It is only when we are away from the brightness of the day, when we let of our own light sources, only then we can notice the mysterious shining of the micro-organisms. For reasons still fully understood, some microalgae, bacteria and other living organisms produce light in various wavelengths (white, green, blue).
