Beautiful Biotechnology

Revolution Bioengineering (, a start-up based in Colorado, is bioengineering color-changing flowers. The products are purely aesthetic: flowers that change color on demand or throughout the day. “It’s a beautiful physical representation of how technology can be used as a tool to produce something artistic,” assert co-founders, Keira Havens and Nikolai Braun, who hope it will capture the imagination of the general public and make genetically modified organisms (GMOs) more accessible, personal, and better understood.

The Basis of Petunia Circadia Color Change. Plants with purple and pink flowers are genetically identical except for a mutation in a vacuolar ion channel. Modulating vacuolar pH leads to change in flower color.
