Characterization of the Bioluminescence (Lux+) Gene E. coli

For Teachers Higher Ed
Students grow E. coli strain HB101, which contains the plasmid pUCD607 with the bioluminescence (Lux+) gene. The plasmid containing the Lux+ gene is isolated from the E. coli, then characterized by restriction analysis.

Light in the Dark: A Study on Bioluminescence

For Teachers 5th - 8th
Young scholars explore bioluminescence in sea organisms. They participate in a glow stick activity that will allow them to be bioluminescent creatures in the deep sea and finally, design their own midwater/deep sea fish that uses...
Lesson Planet

Who Has the Light?

For Teachers 7th - 8th
Students study ways in which the ability to produce light may be useful to deep-sea organisms. In groups, they research and present to the rest of the class, how a specific organism is able to produce bioluminescence.
Lesson Planet

Light Up the Deep Sea

For Teachers 9th - 10th
Young scholars simulate bioluminescence in the marine environment. In this marine science lesson, students investigate how animals in the deep ocean communicate with each other. They explain the function of bioluminescence among marine...
