Glowing rats? Why not?


Genetic engineering is great and can even make rats that glow green under the UV light. Why did they do this? Well, this is how they could prove that inserting a new gene in the cells of the body has actually worked. Using glowing rats, or fluorescent rats, proved that this works just fine.

Hank Green is kinda disappointed that the media is more concerned about glowing rats, which are not very useful to science, and is not more focused on other ventures, like cancer treatment. Come on media, you can do more than the Romanian ProTV, Antena 3 and TVR, who do not stream almost anything about the huge protests that are taking place in Romania right now against Gabriel Resources and the corrupt regime.

In any case, maybe glowing rats would prove useful somewhere 😀
