Abstract

A fluorescent protein from jellyfish changed the way life science research is performed today. Its discovery, the first expression in an animal, the determination of its structure, the details of the mechanism behind the fluorescence, and diversification of the fluorescent properties has made green fluorescent protein a unique tool in the biological sciences, and the scientists that made key contributions to these developments were awarded the 2008 Nobel Prize in Chemistry.
