Illuminate with the Bioluminescence of bacteria

By TCR
— Jun 22, 2017


Bioluminescence is a chemical reaction controlled by a gene enabling certain living organisms to produce light. Many marine species are able to do so, such as algae, jellyfish, squid and shrimp. The Glowee startup, established in 2014, is developing a biological lighting system which uses the natural properties of bioluminescent marine organisms to rethink how […]
