Researchers at the University of California, San Diego engineered these mustard plants to produce a firefly protein called luciferase. The luciferase gene is regulated by a control panel that normally governs a gene called CCA1 — which produces a protein that plays an important role in plants’ circadian clocks. By watching when the light-producing luciferase turns on and off, the researchers can monitor CCA1 activity.
