Have you heard about those adorable glowing marmosets that scientists created using genetic engineering techniques?:


It says that they spliced jellyfish genes into common marmosets to study neurological disorders such as Parkinson’s disease and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis or ALS. These two tragic illnesses hinder people’s ability to control their muscle movements. Who would have thought that a protein expression in the genes of marmosets created by splicing jellyfish genes would lead to treatments for these terrible diseases?
