Glow-In-The-Dark Pigs Birthed Using Jellyfish DNA

Introducing what is sure to be this year’s must-have rave accessory. Via The Verge:

Scientists at the South China Agricultural University announced last week that they had successfully engineered 10 piglets that could glow green under black light. By using a technique pioneered by the University of Hawaii at Manoa School of Medicine, the researchers were able to isolate a fluorescent protein in jellyfish DNA and inject it into pig embryos.

Turkish researchers were able to raise fluorescent rabbits with the University of Hawaii’s technique earlier this year.
