Glowing Plant

A biotech company that participated in the S14 cohort of Y Combinator.

Glowing plant used synthetic biology techniques and Genome Compiler's software to insert bioluminescence genes into Arabidopsis, a small flowering plant and member of the mustard family, to make a plant that visibly glows in the dark (it is inedible).



Funds raised were used to print the DNA sequences designed and to transform the plants by inserting these sequences into the plant and then growing the resultant plant in the lab.
