Jellyfish Monkey...

That's right... phosphorescent simians.

"The jellyfish DNA was packaged inside a viral vector... The vector was used to transfer the DNA into 224 monkey eggs, which were then fertilized. About half divided to become embryos and 40 of those were selected for implantation in monkey wombs. The result was five pregnancies and three live births. Two of the three monkeys did not have the green fluorescence gene, but ANDi did."

Get the scoop here. Thanks Laura for the news flash!
