No joke, this is Ruppy the Puppy. And she is the world’s first transgenic dog. She was created by cloning fibroblast cells that express a red fluorescent gene produced by sea anemones.
New Scientist has the full article, and more pictures (of her non-glowing…she’s fucking adorable. I want her for a nightlight and friendly companion).
While the practice of cloning these pups is sort of useless, it still tells me that science is cool. And that I want a glow-in-the-dark puppy. Who will buy this for me?
