For the first time, gene-edited pigs successfully resist costly virus

Last year, the University of Edinburgh announced that a team of its researchers had used advanced genetic techniques to produce pigs that were potentially resistant to a viral infection that costs the swine industry billions of dollars each year.

Now, those pigs have been put to the test. The team recently exposed the gene-edited pigs […]

First salmon, up next pigs?

Late last year the first genetically engineered animal — a salmon that is designed to grow twice as fast as wild salmon — was approved by the FDA and deemed safe for human consumption. Now, new research is showing another animal may soon join the list as scientists from the University of Missouri and Kansas […]
