Scientists Create Fluorescent Puppy
posted: 1 DAY 16 HOURS AGO
Bioengineering is going to the dogs.
A team of South Korean scientists has
created the world’s first fluorescent puppy, according to New Scientist
normal light, Ruppy looks like any other beagle puppy. In ultraviolet light, she
glows red. She's the first transgenic puppy, meaning she was created with some
genetic material from another creature -- in this case, cloned cells that
include a red fluorescent gene sea anemones produce. Researchers from the Seoul
National University in South Korea released the photos this week.
I am not really sure what to say about this. It was cute when they did it with... fish bait... you know... worms... but dogs????
I may be just a dog, but I know that here someone needs to apply BIO-ETHICS. Yes, look it up folks. BIO-ETHICS. And don't give me that line about medical research either. Frankly, they will use it again when they make YOUR baby glow in the dark!
Never thought I was say this. I am so glad I was made the old fashion way... and no I do not glow in the dark!
Turn that light off now.
P.S. one more thing! My Dowi taught this: "Just 'cause you can, doesn't mean you should!"
