Re: "AND ANOTHER ONE BITES THE DUST" a song


By the way,

Both of y'alls fantasies are possible with present technologies.  Glow in
the blacklight Hosta could be made with a green fluorescent protein from the
jelly fish Aequorin (it is presently used as a marker of gene
transformation).  Bioluminescent (actual glow in the dark) Hosta could be
made using genes from the firefly.  These genes are also used as marker
genes in genetic engineering.  The gene splicers have made several of these
plants already.  It might add to our enjoyment of Hosta  --  a garden that
glows in the dark.
