This effort was part of a faculty development program designed to bring scientists to Connecticut College to work with faculty in incorporating emerging and changing sub-fields into courses and laboratories. This CD is a companion to Volume 6, Part 1, Bioanalytical Applications of Bioluminescence. While Part 1 focused on the firefly luciferase enzyme, Part 2 focuses on the history, chemistry, and applications of the jellyfish green fluorescent protein (GFP). There is also information on the CD about the five scholars who visited Connecticut College to contribute to their faculty development program.

The CD is divided into the following topics:

* History of GFP

* Uses of GFP

* Structure of GFP

* Slide Shows from the Scholars' Presentations

* Seminars by the Scholars

* Resources

Each topic has interactive components. …
