GMO Animals? Genetically Modified Pigs Glow in the Dark Developed by Chinese Scientists Thanks to University of Hawaii

GMO Animals? As if GMO crops were not enough, now a new technique has been developed by the University of Hawaii at Manoa School of Medicine that changes the color of pigs under special lights. Scientists in China created 10 piglets that glow green under black fluorescent lights using the technology that was developed by the University of Hawaii.

The method involves DNA from a jellyfish injected into animal embryos. The technique was used earlier this year to create the world’s first glow-in-the-dark rabbits in Turkey.

But this technique is not intended to turn the colors of animals for fun. Instead, scientists are aiming to inject beneficial genes into larger animals to develop inexpensive and medicines of high efficacy.

Dr. Stefan Moisyadi, from the University of Hawaii, explained, “It’s just a marker to show that we can take a gene that was not originally present in the animal and now exists in it. The green is only a marker to show that it’s working easily”.

What actually indicated by the green colors is the fact that the fluorescent genetic material was able to incorporate into the pig’s natural make-up after it was injected into the embryos.

The findings of the study will soon publish in the Biology of Reproduction Journal. The pigs for the study were created by reproductive scientists in China.

Previous genetically modified cats had been created to glow bright green in an effort to study HIV.
