Red Fluorescent Cat Cloned

Korea leads the world in cloning fluoresecent cats. Invented it, in fact.

You can hear the words in boardrooms across the world--we must close the fluoresecent cat cloning gap!

Red Fluorescent Cat Cloned(The Korea Times): "A Gyeongsang National University team said they have succeeded in cloning cats after modifying a gene to change their skin color. Because of the red fluorescence protein in their skin cells, the three Turkish Angola kittens look reddish under ultraviolet light, the researchers said. The red cloned cat research is expected to be utilized in dealing with certain genetic diseases in animals and humans. It will also help reproduce rare animals, such as tigers and wildcats, which are on the verge of extinction, the team said.
...``We have proved our world-class ability in cloning animals that have modified characteristics,'' said Kong. ``We found that the red fluorescent protein in all the organs of the dead kitten, which means we have established an efficient way of cloning gene-modified cats.''
