These students are doing a bacterial transformation also known as recombinant DNA. It entails putting a plasmid that has a specific gene on it from one organism into a bacterial cell. The plasmid has a marker gene on it that glows when the gene is turned on so you can visually confirm that the plasmid was actually taken into the bacterial cell. Bacterial transformation is a standard procedure in the Biotechnology world. The students are using aseptic techniques while transferring reagents precisely using professional grade micropipettes.

Recombinant DNA is a technology scientists developed that made it possible to insert a human gene into the genetic material of a common bacterium. This “recombinant” micro-organism could now produce insulin that is encoded by the human gene <https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4203937/> .
