Japanese Create A Mutant Mouse That Tweets Like a Bird


www.popsci.com

A laboratory at the University of Osaka running an ongoing study on evolution has revealed that they’ve produced a genetically engineered mouse that tweets like a bird. They’ve produced more than 100 of them actually, as well as a mouse with short limbs and one with a tail like a dachshund. It’s all part of a larger study into how genetic mutations drive evolutions and diverse outcomes that can come about as a result of miscopying DNA.

Looks cool to me.

Let the games begin.

It's like a foreign language for mice, maybe they'll all start chirpin'! They might acquire each other's langauge or something. Or maybe they'll be like when in the story of the tower of Babel, the race was separated by language, and fight each other.

... and North Korea, in partnership with China have created a a #zu dog that roars like a lion & lays rotten eggs. The USA have created an eagle that fits into the palm of your hand but makes the most horrendous noise, builds nests all over the place & promptly craps in them, sets fire to them then leaves. The UK have created a hybrid from a snake & a blind micro-elephant that can't stop talking (or lying) it blunders around breaking stuff & pretending to rule the world even though nobody cares or listens & is laughing. All three share the curious genetic propensity for compulsion to very public suicide.

Gotta love those little GE curiosities. ...Wonder how many labs are doing the same thing with viruses?...


(the lab) ...genetically modifies mice to be prone to miscopying DNA. From there, the outcomes are left to chance...


...The outcomes are left to chance ?!?



S&F btw

I would really like to see a video of these mice tweeting like a bird. And what did they say they did to it's tail?

S+F

How can you people support this? This is absolutely awful. But of course I don't expect many of you to see how until the same thing is being done to a human. Not until a human baby is yapping like a seal will you see that we have truly crossed the line.

THIS IS NOT OUR JOB! THIS IS NATURE'S JOB! LEAVE IT ALONE!

God. I hope we go extinct. Soon. It'd be for the best.

Very cool...as long as they can keep the mutations from taking over general populations.

I dont support this idea in any way..can you imagine owning one of these it would become ANNOYING very quickly then just imagine someone not wanting it anymore and letting it lose into the wild ..Yikes we would be over ran with mutant singing mice with dog tails

I really like the concept, guys is just research on evolution
It is build in our DNA to explore the world and advance scientifically
do we have ethics, course we have but we also need to do some research
to know about our evolution and explore everything, in the short time we live.

This is cool. If its "gods" work to change nature, then i guess that makes us GOD!!!!!

im ok with that

This is effins tupid messin with mother nature like this. one of these days, she's going to get totaly even with us, for disturbing her balance! maybe thats why thiers diseases and virus's that affect us certain ways, to elimination...she knew we were a pest* a surface neusance.
i think its wrong, not necessarily religously, but morally. i hope something goes terribly wrong one day in some lab, and something like resident evil breaks out
that'll teach us all and them

Ethics and the Hippocratic Oath prevent this from being done to humans. I suppose you are against paternity tests and research into diseases too? Or perhaps mapping human genes? It's research. They aren't needlessly killing the animals, they are researching them and most likely taking care of them.

This mentality of not advancing science is what keeps us in the dark ages.

This is our job. We can do this, than we should do it. Otherwise it´s like you would have a beautiful singing voice but you never ever sing! Like an artist without a pencil!
The way we use those things is the scary part. Many people will use it for war. I´m waiting for times showing beasts like the ancient sumarien or babylonian tablets. Partly beast partly human.

This is totally sick and against the laws of the universe.

Trust Japan, another totally sick country, to do so.

May the Lord help the creatures who have been insulted.

Imagine a human with the intelligence of a chimp.

That I approve of. Maybe then we'll advance as a species.

Naaah to me this mouse does only make very strange sounds hear here for yourself.

i was expecting some thing a bit more wierded i guess it is just a mouse at the end of the day though i cant see the point still in a tweeting mouse..cant we research something that has more use to humans and the world instead of a mouse that makes different sounds ?


Biggest fail

Too late...

Hybrid Human-Animal Embryo Research Approved In The UK


The nuclear transfer technique would involve removing the nucleus of a cow egg - which contains most of its genetic information - and fusing the cow egg with the nucleus of a human cell such as a skin cell. The egg will then be encouraged to divide until it is a cluster of cells only a few days old called a blastocyst, or an early-stage cloned embryo.

The Island of Doctor Moreau: Now Taking Applications


The United Kingdom's Human Fertilization and Embryology Authority says it will begin considering license applications from scientists who want to combine human cells with animal eggs in order to create new stem cells for research in curing debilitating diseases. Though it is still a far cry from Bush's infamous speech, I'm still dreaming an army of hybrids led by Marlon Brando in "white face" to come marching out of the labs, Val Kilmer and Fairuza Balk. An article outlining the reactions of various groups in the U.K. is available from The Independent.

The strange, half-human creatures in the image above are neither real nor a hoax; they are elements of a sculpture by Australian artist Patricia Piccinini entitled "The Young Family," which, in turn, is part of a larger installation called "We Are Family," described by Jane Silversmith of the Australian Council for the Arts as an exploration of "the changing relationship between what is considered natural and what is considered artificial."
