The nine sheep were born as part of an experiment in October 2012.

Scientists say the sheep developed normally, without showing any other difference from non-modified sheep.

The researchers used a gene that produces a green fluorescent protein in jellyfish, to give the sheep that neon glow.

  1. HOW DO EGG YOLKS BECOME CHICKENS? (Internet Article) When you divide a cake, the parts are smaller than the original cake and the cake never gets bigger. When we were a single cell and that cell divided, the new cells were the same size as the original and we got bigger. New material had to come from somewhere. That new material came from food. The sequence of molecules in our DNA directed the molecules from our mother’s food, we received in the womb, to become new cells forming all the tissues and organs of our body. When you understand how your DNA works, you’ll also understand how egg yolks can become chickens.. Read my popular Internet article: HOW DO EGG YOLKS BECOME CHICKENS? Just google the title to access the article.

    This article will give you a good understanding of how DNA works, as well as cloning and genetic engineering.
