CHINESE SCIENTISTS CREATE GENE-HACKED MONKEY THAT GLOWED GREEN. ‘As in the days of Noah, ALL FLESH HAD BECOME CORRUPTED, DEFILED OR UNCLEAN.’ The world’s first live-born “chimeric” monkey. A chimera is an animal with more than two sets of DNA.
NOV 10 / BY MAGGIE HARRISON NEOSCOPE
Behold! Scientists in China have announced the birth of a glowing green monkey.
Yes, it’s real. As The Independent reports, the lab-born primate has made history as the world’s first live-born “chimeric” monkey. A chimera, as the report explains, is an animal with more than two sets of DNA; in this case, the long-tailed macaque was created by combining two genetically distinct embryos of the same species.
And by all accounts, this little monkey — which, sadly, was euthanized by researchers after ten days — was a strange fellow indeed. According to the researchers’ proof-of-concept study, published Thursday in the journal Cell, the macaque had a glowing green face and fingertips, in addition to fluorescent green eyes.
The researchers aren’t just trying to build a chimeric primate for the hell of it. As the Independent notes, scientists often use chimeric mice and rats in lab settings as a means of studying embryonic development, as well as examining disease progression in living organs and tissues. Mice and rats, however, aren’t nearly as genetically similar to humans as our primate cousins are, meaning that the successful engineering of chimeric monkeys could offer humanity much more accurate — and thus, hopefully, more fruitful — means of cellular study and disease modeling. (Sorry, it’s a little sad, we know.)
“Mice don’t reproduce many aspects of human disease for their physiology being too different from ours,” senior study author Zhen Liu, a researcher at the Chinese Academy of Sciences, told CNN. “In contrast, human and monkey are close evolutionary, so human diseases can be more faithfully modeled in monkeys.”
To create the monkey, scientists took stem cells from a seven-day-old embryo — the donor embryo — and added them to another, slightly younger embryo. These embryos were then implanted into several female macaques, leading to 12 pregnancies in total. Of those twelve, six infants were born — and one, the lil’ guy in question, was born alive.
Though the monkey didn’t live for long, its successful birth represents a notable stride in genetic modification research. As ScienceAlert notes, in past attempts to create chimeric primates, the donor DNA was deeply underrepresented in the offspring’s body tissues. But this time, according to the study, donor DNA was found in 26 different types of body tissue — and in rates varying from 21 to an astonishing 92 percent, no less. These are significant increases from previous trials, and an exciting turning of the tides for genetic researchers.
Scientists seem particularly thrilled about a large aggregation of donor cells found in the primate’s brain tissue. As study coauthor Miguel Esteban, principal investigator at the Guangzhou Institute of Biomedicine and Health at the Chinese Academy of Sciences, told CNN, this finding suggests that chimeric macaques could one day be useful for “modeling neurodegenerative diseases.”
By the way, if you’re wondering why this perfect little goblin was green, it was on purpose. When the scientists combined the embryos, they added a green fluorescent protein to the donor cells — that way, they could more easily track where some of that DNA was disseminating. This in mind, the fact that it was visible from the outside-in is pretty wild.
As fascinating as this breakthrough is, however, it’s important to remember that the monkey wasn’t born healthy; if it was, researchers wouldn’t have had to euthanize the guy after only ten days. So, there’s still a long way to go in the journey toward the first truly viable chimera primate.
Regardless, this study may well be seen as a landmark trial — or at least, a trial that opens the door to future breakthroughs. RIP, little freak. You made history!
But how can (7) they call on him (Jesus Christ) to save (7) them unless they believe in Him (Jesus Christ)? (7) And how can they believe in Him (7) (Jesus Christ) if they have never heard about (7) Him (Jesus Christ)? And how can they hear (7) about Him (Jesus Christ) unless someone tells them?” Romans 10:14 (777777)

Make Your (7) Decision for Christ NOW!!!!!!! Time is Up!!!!!!!
Jesus Christ’s Offer of Salvation:
The ABCs (7) of Salvation through Jesus Christ (the Lamb)
A. (7) Admit/Acknowledge/Accept that you are sinner. Ask (7) God’s forgiveness and repent of your sins.
. . . “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23).
. . . “As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one.” (Romans 3:10).
. . . “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.” (1 John 1:8).
B. Believe Jesus is Lord. Believe that (7) Jesus Christ is who He claimed to (7) be; that He was both fully God (7) and fully man and that we are (7) saved through His death, burial, and resurrection. (7) Put your trust in Him as your (7) only hope of salvation. Become a son (7) or daughter of God by receiving Christ. (7777777) 7×7
. . . “That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. (John 3:15-17). For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13).
C. Call upon His name, Confess (7) with your heart and with your lips (7) that Jesus is your Lord and Savior.
. . . “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” (Romans 10:9-10).
. . . “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.” (John 1:8-10).
. . . “And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. (John 2:2).

For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.” (Romans 5:8-10).
