Scientists Create a Glow-in-the-Dark Dog


Scientists from South Korea have used cloning techniques to create a dog that will let off an impressive green glow when a doxycycline antibiotic is slipped into its food. Without the drug, the dog’s superhero powers will fade. This technique could help find cures for human diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's.
