From Seaside to Bedside: How Marine Organisms and Insects Can Be Used for Diagnostics and Therapeutics
Bioluminescence is a naturally occurring phenomenon used by various animals to produce light. For example, the firefly uses this mechanism, as well as several deep-sea creatures. The goal of the program is to explain and demonstrate how these unique, light emitting mechanisms were evolved in nature through millions of years. Furthermore, how those mechanisms are now being used by scientists for biomedical research.
