Long known for backing software plays, Y Combinator is starting to dip its toes into biotech.

In its latest batch is a new synthetic biology startup called Glowing Plant that blew away Kickstarter funding goals last year with plans to engineer — you guessed it — a glow-in-the-dark plant.

Glowing Plant’s aims are to build functional plants for the home that could repel insects or work as air fresheners. The inspiration behind the original glowing plant was to rethink street or nighttime lighting.
