    Default Fluorescent pig has glowing piglets



    Lab freakology has reached a new level.
    A fluorescent pig in China has reportedly given birth to “piglets that share their mother’s transgenic characteristic after she mated with an ordinary pig,” according to Reuters.
    Liu Zhonghua, a professor at Northeast Agricultural University, is quoted in state media as saying, “The mouths, trotters and tongues of the two piglets glow green under ultraviolet light, which indicates the technology to breed transgenic pigs via cell nuclear transfer is mature.”
    The offbeat breeding is not done so the pigs can be found at night, insofar as we know. Rather, it’s part of a larger effort to push the envelope of transgenic breeding and, ultimately, grow human organs in pigs for transplant.
