Glow In Dark Rabbits Not Just For Science Fun, But For Curing Diseases One Day (Video)

So glowing rabbits don't just exist in Sherlock Holmes reboots. Scientists from the University of Hawaii have collaborated with a team from Istanbul, Turkey to create a couple of bright green lab rabbits as part of an effort to understsand hereditary illness and make cheaper medicine.
The rabbits are part of a genetic manipulation experiment, that the researchers hope will shed some light on hereditary diseases and hopefully lead the way to producing drugs to cure them.
The glowing effect was made by injecting the rabbits with a fluorescent protein from jellyfish DNA to show that genetic manipulation works. Researchers could be injecting beneficial DNA into rabbits in the future so they might be used to produce medicine.
Till then, the bunnies will just be glowing green.
And if you're wondering if it hurts them, don't worry. The glowing rabbits will live long normal and healthy lives. They'll just have to deal with being shun by their other non-glowing rabbits perhaps.
And this is not the first time animals have been made to glow in efforts to look for a cure to diseases. How about the glowing dog from South Korea or the radioactive kitten from Mayo Clinic helping researchers to look for an AIDS vaccine?
Can genetic manipulation save us from diseases one day? Let's hope. [Discovery]
Einstein went through the most recent 30 years of his life attempting to consummate a Unified Field Theory. I, when all is said and done, discovered it incredibly hard to investigate the material for this article in an opportune way. The subject of time or space-time can be a puzzle. As a former architect I think that it's an interesting subject. Quicker than light (FTL) or "Superluminal Communication" as it is generally called, can be accomplished by utilizing Quantum Entanglement. Read more
Whether you follow any local dirt bike championship or a global level championship series, you will find one thing, which is expected – MX graphics. And the reason is simple; they rule the roost and impress the broadest possible audiences. If you closely look at any bike, you will see that people use my graphics all across the cycle, from its tank shrouds/fuel tank, side number plates, airbox, rear fender, front fender, front number plate, fork guards, etc. All these graphics are printed and laminated with the highest quality and push the beauty of a bike.
