Scientists bioengineered piglets to carry pluripotent stem cells by injecting the cells into a pig embryo. The cells were harvested from an embryolike cell, which was produced by infusing six genes into another pig's bone marrow cell. The researchers are optimistic that the effort will aid studies on human illnesses as well as in bioengineering livestock to benefit tissue transplants and food consumption.
