Whatever plant marked with a fluorochrome, or maybe expressing GFP mostly in its vascular tissue.

It's a glow in the dark tobacco plant. It has a firefly gene incorporated into its DNA; therefore, we've got (carcinogenic toxic cigs) glow in the dark tobacco

i believe this is one of those plants that have the firefly effect of luciferase something.. i've studied this before, just forget the name of it.

*research*

yep genetically modified tobacco plant.

Wish I could alter my DNA like that. :P
Imagine if they sold that stuff on the market. Now selling! Glow in the dark cigarettes.

I think it's better to use Phosporiscent than fluoroscent because in order to do a fluoroscent, a thing must absorb an ultraviolet wavelength light first and at the same time, it will radiates a light which have a longer wavelength that can be seen by us...

The picture is exactly the same with the one in my bio-textbook,Campbell. :lol: :mrgreen:
