Glowing cats

I long time ago I flatted with a postgrad geneticist-microbiologist who had the crazy idea of trying to make bioluminescent bananas (so they could be picked in the dark 🙂 ). Apparently, bananas are the wrong type of plant for the bioluminescent symbiote he wanted to use, though potatoes would have worked.

Now I see this – SKorean Scientists Clone Cats That Glow: Wired News – AP News – and I wonder, what ever happened to my old flatmate?
