Genetic Engineering Advances

From Guardian Unlimited comes news that scientists have successfully transplanted human chromosomes into mice, a first that promises to transform medical research into the genetic causes of disease. Go here to read the rest of this fascinating article.

Elizabeth Fisher at the Institute of Neurology and Victor Tybulewicz at the National Institute for Medical Research in London spent 13 years perfecting the technique which is reported in the journal Science today.

The geneticists were reluctant to release the results of their early research using cats instead of mice.

By the way, Cube, maybe you get so little comments because you only allow people with IDs at blogger.com! Why don´t you allow anonymous comments too and enable the control field that makes people enter the letters they read on an image manually before they can send the comment. This would open up for anyone and prevent spam.
Regards,
Ralph from allralph.de and allralph.de/openblog

I used to allow anonymous remarks & some idiot posted a bunch of nasty links to many of my posts.

I used to use word verification, but had to discontinue it because it would often work improperly & disallow comments for no good reason.

But perhaps you're right. I have never tried them in the combination you described. Thanks for the post.

Hey - reminds me of a post I did back in August titled, "Teenage Mutant Ninja HUMANS"

Chimeras - a hybrid of two different species...coming to a laboratory near you!

I am still on the fence (but leaning) with lot's of issue regarding genetic modification. Scary stuff!
Peace.......

I commented on the newest post with the spam--didn't see the rationale for login and verification in this thread. So you turned on anonymous remarks and that's what happened. Bummer.

I'm not against genetic engineering, but it should be carefully monitored. Just recently some bubonic-plague infected mice disappeared from a Jersey lab. Not a good sign.

This picture is like echoes of The Shining and Rosemary's Baby to me, it freaks me out.
I am completely freaked out now.
