New in BioTech: Glow-in-the-dark Rabbits
From the world of wacky in science and technology comes a story that researchers at the University of Hawaii and the University of Istanbul have succeeded in creating rabbit embryos that glow in the dark. Two of a litter of eight rabbits are normal white fluffy rabbits in the light, but glow green in the dark, due to bit of jellyfish DNA implanted into the embryos.
The researchers say that the green glow itself is not important, but rather the success of implanting a foreign gene to develop a foreign trait.
I wouldn’t mind a glow-in-the-dark houseplant to replace all the night lights around my house. 😉
