Part of First Recitation Assignment to be turned-in at your first Recitation
August 29 or 30:
Provide typed paper about the Green Fluorescent Protein (GFP) answering the
following questions:
1. In what organism was GFP discovered, how was it discovered, and what is
its natural function in the organism.
2. What is the molecular weight, and 3-D shape of GFP? What is the
wavelength of light that excites its green fluorescence, and what are the
wavelengths of this fluorescence?
3. Who first discovered the gene for GFP and made cDNA for protein
expression.
4. Who were the three scientists that shared last years Nobel Prize in chemistry
for their work on GFP; what were the significant contributions of each that
won them a share of the prize?
5. Who else do you think should have also been awarded a share of the prize?
