Glow in the dark plants!

Cheers to The Scientist Image of the Day by Stephen Howell.

This tobacco plant glows because it’s expressing the luciferase gene. Luciferase codes for oxidative enzymes that help produce bioluminescence — organisms that glow! The name comes from ‘lucifer’ and derives from the Latin root ‘lucem ferre’, which means ‘light-bearer’.
