We have not yet been able to test a procedure, but the procedure could involve using microprojectile bombardment/a "gene gun", a device used to insert genetic information into a cell. The device uses mediums like microscopic gold or copper particles that are coated with genetic information, and these particles enter the cell with the genes inserted simultaneously. The isolated genes that code for luciferin production in bioluminescent organisms could be isolated and transferred into a bacterium using this method, and then luciferase could be used to create light. This method could be used on bacteria, but it is not the only possible way to test the design; it could also be used on plant cells.
