  1. Ah, I see. I don't know what I was thinking. How would I get the flurecence gene into the plant/seed?
  2. The I was thinking of something more like the Glo fish. They are the animal version if what I want. I was thinking injecting the protein into the nucleus of a seed that hasn't germinated yet. Hopefully it would bond with the DNA and the rose would produce it's own protein from there once it grew. If this would work, it would also past the new trait to offspring. And I'm not sure about the putting dye into a cut plant. Could it be toxic to the plant? Otherwise, that's a good short term idea. The I was thinking of something more like the Glo fish.

  3. I've come up with an idea to make transgenic flowers. My inspiration came from Glo fish, my fascination in the beauty of flowers, and being a sappy romantic. My idea is to microinject the seeds of a rose with Red Fluorescent Protein (RFP) so that when under a black light, the rose glows a beautiful red. My idea comes with a question: would this work? I've read a little, but most research for RFP is focused on animals and most research for transgenic plants focus on favorable attributes of crops. I'm not sure if this would work the same way for a flower and it would be preferable that the prote
