Actually they fluoresce rather than glow so need a specific wavelength (489nm) to excite the GFP (green fluorescent protein) molecule to emit light at 508nm. It's a handy way to tag other genes when making transgenic plants and animals, that way you can tell easily if the modification has been successful. The jellyfish is Aequorea victoria
Yes, yes, that's all well and good BUT how do I make myself glow or flouresce (whatever) in the dark?
