Bio-Rad’s pGLO Bacterial Transformation and GFP Kits offer engaging and unforgettable lab activities in which students engineer bacteria to express the Green Fluorescent Protein (GFP) and glow green under UV light. These kits enable hands-on learning about the central dogma, gene expression and regulation, genetic engineering, protein separation, and the biomanufacturing process.
These lab kits are available in three formats to support your teaching needs:
Bio-Rad's pGLO Bacterial Transformation Kit is the classic kit for teaching the central dogma and the basics of genetic engineering. In this bacterial transformation lab activity, students use the pGLO plasmid to transform bacteria to express green fluorescent protein (GFP) from the bioluminescent jellyfish Aequorea victoria, which causes the bacteria to glow green under UV light. Explore the concept of DNA > RNA > Protein > Trait and the roles that external and internal factors play in gene regulation.
