cloning things scares me, when do we start cloning humans, and for what purpose?

I hate when people say this **** . It's the progression of science.

I told my barber once about a mechanical heart that has been developed that those equipped with said heart have no pulse as blood flows evenly through the body rather than in spurts. I told her it had already saved 17 lives. She said those people shouldn't be alive, its unhuman.

Bull. **** . I mean how? How can they GENETICALLY ENGINEER A DOG TO GLOW IN THE DARK?! They can BARELY clone **** now, it can take hundreds of attempts to clone an animal, and you want me to believe you can make it glow in the dark too? Thanks, but i aint buying the **** you're selling South Korea! Also, before you say "LOL! BUT THERES PROOF FAGGOT!" Yeah? Well, theres also "proof" that big foot exists, i aint going for it. Also, YOU CANNOT MAKE A DOG GLOW IN THE DARK YOU ******* MORONS! THE SKIN IS NOT GLOWABLE! Its not like ******* spore! "Oh, i think i'll create an animal with 10 legs that looks like a dog!" NO! It cannot be done! South Korea are just trying to out bull **** the north. Its like "Bitch, you got nukes? Well, we got GLOW IN THE DARK JACK RUSSELLS! Come at us ******* !" Jesus Christ this is just so stupid!

I'm sure you studied this topic quite intensely. I'd love to see your lab notes.

why are we actually not fund these projects further apart from the god damn ethics and morals that bible thumpers love to impose on us?

Basically what they do is inject pieces of DNA into the dog and combine it with the dogs pre existing DNA. the newly created DNA now hold a recipe for the making of protein that when combined with glucose the protein glows.

Now i could be completely wrong, this is just something that we talked about in biology in my most recent year of school.

eh, you arent exactly wrong.

A protein code is introduced in whats called a plasmid (yes, plasmid) to the egg cell. From the external environment it becomes part of the DNA. The protein comes from a species of jellyfish called Aequorea victoria, and itself is known as G.F.P, or Green Florescent Protein. They modify it to glow a number of different colors.

Its been some time, but I actually had to do this in college with E. Coli and started to do it with a Pig, but graduated before we finished and next years group took on with my work.

You can read more on the matter of discovery of G.F.P and how it changed our world in a book by Dr. Mark Zimmer called Glowing Genes
