Section 6: From Genotype to Phenotype, after p. 201:

Topic Name: Glowing Proteins (1) at University of Arizona
Green fluorescent protein (GFP) is a protein that is produced by the jellyfish Aequoria victoria. This protein confers to the jellyfish the ability to glow, or "fluoresce," in the ocean water. Recently this protein has been extensively studied for its usefulness in molecular biology to help in the study of gene expression and to help visualize other proteins in the cell.
