“Looks like some Korean scientists have used cloning techniques to make a beagle – name of Tegon – that glows under ultraviolet light when a certain drug is added to her food,” Spence says. “The lead researcher – Byeong-Chun Lee – says this can be a step toward finding cures for some human diseases, dogs and humans having 268 diseases in common. He also seems to say that genes that trigger fatal human diseases can be introduced with or substituted for the substance that causes the glow. What do we think of this?”
“I’m fine with it,” says Admin. “As long as Tegon gave informed consent.”
