If you are like me, one who believes plants are much more than what the human eye can see. I’m convinced they are special creatures living a rich life of their own. Imagine, not only they are present outside the earth’s surface–seeing and breathing the same air than us—but, also, existing under the air’s surface where they must have an incredibly magical life. The subject of plants and their internal life has always fascinated me.

No surprise to be intrigued by the ‘Glowing Plants’ project. Started by a team of scientists that by putting together a series of DNA sequences made plants glow.

All living organisms contain an instruction set that determines what they look like and what they do. These instructions are encoded in the organism’s DNA. Through genetic engineering, scientists can alter the DNA to develop new breeds of plants and animals.

The team behind the project Glowing Plant is working on making plants glow as bright as possible. GLOWING PLANTS uses synthetic biology and Genome Compiler’s software, which will be the first step in creating sustainable natural lighting.

Imagine having in your home or office a plant that will give you light? It will be the perfect marriage of beauty and functionality.

The glowing plants project is currently seeking funding on Kickstarter.
