Genetically Modified Monkeys
They can glow in the dark!
New Biotechnology makes the genetic modification of a primate possible
How the CRISPR works...
Scientists have used the CRISPR system to their advantage by inserting specialized RNA, with information to cut the DNA exactly where they want, into the bacteria. This bacteria is, then, inserted into the monkey. Basically, scientists have turned a bacteria defense system into a precise gene-editing tool.
How this technology is being used today
Many scientist have speculated that "instead of inflicting great suffering on other species, the research industry should be investing its substantial intellect, ingenuity and resources into finding more appropriate methods to fight human disease." (Michelle Thew).
Also, this sudden advance in human technology heightens the idea of human perfection and idealism. By finding the cure to many of these diseases, the door to genetically engineering humans and animals just for experimental purposes is flung wide open.
It is also observed that the public has no say in this scary advancement, nor do many of them even have a clue that it is going on.
