Fish are friends… not food!

The Week is one of my all-time favorite news sources, and this is a good example of why! I think it’s absolutely amazing that so many species of fish have this trait… Especially since many of them aren’t closely related at all! This reminded me of the jellyfish gene for biofluorescence that we learned about being inserted into a plasmid… but now they come in many colors! It will be exciting to learn what evolutionary advantages this brings to the fish and how they utilize it in their interactions with those around them!

    Ok, this may be weird, but wouldn’t it be awesome if they transferred this into humans as an eye color? Maybe we should work on human cloning so we can give it a shot haha
