Controversial experiment on monkey brains.

Post by Dreamweaver » 13 Apr 2019, 19:27

A team of researchers working in China has created several transgenic rhesus monkeys by adding a human gene involved in brain growth to the monkey's genome. In their paper published in the National Science Review, the group describes their work and the testing they conducted on the monkeys after they were born.
They are doing this to extend their knowledge of the human brain and human developmental problems, but what will happen to the animals studied? Will they breed and be a new type of creature?
