Glowing Flowers

There is a project to create glowing plants using synthetic biology and Genome Compiler's software. The project says it is the first step in creating sustainable natural lighting.

This is a kickstarter project where people donate money in hopes of seeing the project succeed commercially. Backers who back the project with $40 or more receive seeds to grow a glowing plant at home and can expect around 50-100 small seeds. Backers who back the project with $150 will get a glowing rose as well when it's completed.
