Genetically Engineered Bioluminescent Fish Unveiled In Taiwan
Nov 09, 2012 15:08
These glowing pink angelfish were recently unveiled at a conference in Taiwan's Taipei, and are the first of it's kind.
Created by a joint project between Taiwan’s Academia Sinica, National Taiwan Ocean University and a private biotechnology company. The Taiwanese biotechnologists decided to modify these fish to produce a
dazzling glow-in-the-dark display for aquarium enthusiasts.
The fish were genetically-engineered to glow brightly without the aid of
ultraviolet lamps commonly placed in fish tanks. This glowing
effect is produced by an organism using a chemical reaction known as
bioluminescence, and is commonly used by sea creatures to communicate
with one another.
