Fluorescent proteins are molecules naturally present in certain organisms to improve their visibility in nature. Their identification and molecular characterisation has enabled biologists and chemists alike to use them as clever tools. Through genetic modifications, it has been possible to create an entire palette of colourful proteins for scientists to paint cells with. Let's go through the journey of how these 'colours' came to be!

Way before people started recording history using the written word, mankind sought to document its experiences in vivid images and stunning symbols, dating back to about 64,000 years. Luckily, some of these marvellous depictions of animals, hunting rituals and sky charts have survived the tides of time and are still found inside remote caves even today! Join us as we travel to an ancient world and discover the first calendars, the advent of written language and the very beginnings of art!
