Cancer fighting wonder pigs by night?
These pigs from Taiwan had the Green Fluorescent Protein gene from the jellyfish aqueora victoriana ?? transformed into them prior to implantation into their mothers. Three pigs were born out of 265 embryos used for transformation.
Researchers hope to use the pigs to study human disease. The green fluorescence of the pig cells will help distinguish pig tissue from human tissue in areas such as stem cell research.
Personally, I think we should find these guys a genetically engineered rat sensai? and put them to work fighting crime.
