Expert Answer:

This is possible through genetic engineering. The gene coding for the enzymes involved in bioluminescence can be transferred from the firefly to the desired organism by using restriction enzymes. This gene will then bring about the action of bioluminescence in the target organism. transferring the entire gland is not required.
