USDA Approves Sale Of Glowing Bioluminescent ‘Firefly’ Petunias Infused With Mushroom DNA

Because scientists are determined to make DNA hacking the way of the future whether you refuse to eat GMO corn or not, ‘synthetic biology startup’ Light Bio has created Firefly Petunias, flowers infused with the DNA of bioluminescent mushrooms so they glow in the dark. And the USDA has just approved their sale, so you can grow your own glowing flowers ($29). Next stop, TRON gardens! And while glowing plants are cool and all, let’s not lose sight of the real goal of DNA hacking: me with wings.
