Glowing monkeys

Glowing monkeys

They exist. And are green in color.

There is such a thing as green glowing monkeys. And the genetically modified creatures may even help to create treatments for human diseases in the future. A report in the BBC says that a team of scientists in Japan have “introduced a gene into marmoset embryos that allows them to build green fluorescent protein in their tissues.”

While the experiment has raised ethical questions about the procedure, “scientists argue that, because primates are more similar to humans than mice, they present a more refined model of human disease,” says the BBC report. And this in turn will allow scientists to test treatments more effectively.

Green glowing monkeys seem more out of a 1980s science fiction movie, and the idea that they can actually be created is kind of scary. Even if it is to help fight human disease.

We like brown monkeys.
