Scientist J├╝rgen Bachl observes a genetically manipulated mouse. The four-day-old rodent glows green under specially filtered light. Researchers had injected a green-florescent-protein gene (GFP) from a deep-sea jellyfish into fertilized mouse egg-cells. The GFP spreads through all cells and tissue of the embryo. Scientists hope to use this discovery to further research into cell differentiation and tumor growth.
