Transcript for Rabbits Glow Green for Medical Research
The search pretty waste -- medicines has resulted in some glow in the dark green rabbits. They look normal until the lights are out and that is when you see two fluorescent bunnies the glowing. Construct fluorescent protein that's taken from jelly fish DNA. Injected when they -- embryos. Dr. Joseph mark that the University of Hawaii explains this green gene. He's just a Marca too sure that we can pick a gene that was not. Ordered to leave the animals and not exist in the animal expresses. But the goal is to eventually introduce the genes to larger animals which will make producing a life -- enzymes for humans. More affordable.
