A research team at National Taiwan University claims it has succeeded in breeding three male green pigs by injecting fluorescent green protein into embryonic pigs. Partially green pigs exist elsewhere, but the Taiwanese pigs are believed to be the only ones that are green inside out, including their hearts and internal organs. In the dark, they glow bright neon green. The pigs will reportedly be used in stem cell research and in the study of several human diseases. (ABC NEWS)

    Gene splicing is troubling. As much promise as it portends, the dangers are untold. The pace at which technology outpaces ethical considerations is one thing, but the cart before the horse of a natural world constantly seeking a balance is
    potentially cataclysmic.

    This is the Jurassic park of cell biology.
