“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.
