Green Fluorescent Protein is produced by the jellyfish Aequorea victoria and used for measuring gene expression in molecular biology; organisms can be engineered to express GFP when they express some other gene, and then researchers can look for the characteristic fluorescence to see where the other gene is being expressed.
