Glowing sheep have been born in Turkey and it’s all thanks to research in Hawaii.

A group of scientists from Istanbul University created the transgenic sheep using the technology developed by a professor from the University of Hawaii.

A fluorescent protein was injected into sheep embryos.

The ultimate goal is to introduce beneficial genes into larger animals that will provide less costly and more efficient medicines.
