I am not a bio major, but I would appreciate any information on genetic 
experimentation involving fireflies and tomatoes.  As I understand, there were
experiments a couple of years ago which somehow crossed the " glowing genes "
of the firefly with a garden variety tomato, resulting in a tomato with 
glowing skin. If anyone has more information on this subject, I would 
appreciate a brief synopsis of the results.
Thanks.
