South China Agricultural University researchers have engineered 10 piglets to glow green under black light after using a technique that the University of Hawaii at Manoa School of Medicine created. The scientists injected pig embryos with a fluorescent protein found in jellyfish DNA, resulting in the glowing piglets. Researchers say the technique can be used to more economically develop medicines and therapies for conditions such as hemophilia.
