Possibly the strangest genetic engineering story I've read yet hit the wire today. It seems scientists have implanted spider genes in goats, causing the goats to produce milk filled with web-like strands of fiber. The fibers will be harvested and put to use as sutures in eye surgery, among other things. I bet it'd make a killer dental floss.
But I'm not putting it in my mouth.
The crazed Canadians behind this scheme aim to keep the business local. That's fine by me, since I don't want goat egg sacs littering the countryside around here.
