SERIES PLAYLIST: Purification of Green Fluorescent Protein

Playlist description:

In 2008 the Nobel Prize in Chemistry was awarded to three scientists “for the discovery and development of the green fluorescent protein, GFP.” GFP is a fluorescent protein that was first isolated from a jellyfish called Aequoria victoria in 1961. Join DNALC instructors Amanda McBrien and Erin McKechnie to explore how jellyfish use GFP in nature, how molecular biologists have learned to use the protein in their research, and how to extract and purify GFP from genetically engineered bacteria.
