No, these are not album covers. They are glowing monkeys. Speechless…. here’s the deal,
“A quintet of genetically engineered glowing monkeys have proved that foreign genes can be passed onto future generations.
The five marmosets carry a fluorescent protein gene that causes their skin to glow under ultraviolet light. Scientists were able to show the gene could be inherited by their offspring.
The Japanese breakthrough opens up the prospect for the first time of monkeys being used – like mice – as research tools for the study of numerous human diseases.”
