Chinese Scientists Create First Of Its Kind Monkey With Green Eyes Glowing Fingertips
Chinese scientists have created a monkey with dark green eyes through the combination of DNA. The tip part of its fingers shines. According to CNN, two sets of DNA have been used in this. Scientists say that this experiment will be beneficial in medical research and will also help in saving the species from extinction. However, this monkey could survive only for 10 days. It was produced in the lab itself. It has been described in the journal Cell how the entire process of creating a monkey was.
This monkey was created through an unprecedented experiment. In which stem cells of monkeys of the same genetically different species were used. Scientists have called it chimeric i.e. mixed organism. This was the first experiment of its kind in the world. Scientists are saying that this experiment can do wonders in saving the extinct species. In this, a new organism can be created by mixing two species, in which a species can be included which is on the verge of extinction.
Such experiments have been done before also. But they were not done on monkeys. One such experiment was conducted in the 1960s. This was done on rats when scientists prepared chimeric mice for the first time. It was later used in biomedical research. But the species which is on the verge of extinction can be saved by this, on which scientists are now working.
