The discovery of a green fluorescent protein from Jellyfish has helped scientists to win a Nobel Chemistry Prize. This protein was isolated from Jellyfish and used as a luminous genetic tag. Tagging is an important tool for biologists to see how the molecular machinery in cells operates. This common biological method has numerous applications such as looking at how cancer cells spread through tissue.
