Scientists create glow-in-the-dark rabbits

Glow in the dark bunnies?

Scientists in Istanbul are pleased with the success of their latest scientific achievement: glowing green rabbits.

Two rabbits born from a litter of eight at the University of Istanbul proved again that genetic manipulation is possible prior to birth. The unique coloration was achieved by injecting the DNA of jellyfish into a female rabbit’s embryos and then reinserting them into her womb. The experiment is part of a joint scientific effort between Turkey and Hawaii.
