Bioengineers create new creature: glow-in-the-dark angelfish11/9/2012
Taiwan’s Academia Sinica, National Taiwan Ocean University and Jy Lin, a biotechnology company, have come together to bioengineer these gorgeous "Pink Angel Delights" that glow in the dark and look like they were ripped straight off a Lisa Frank notebook. These modified angelfish, which don’t need an ultraviolet lamp in their tank to glow, were unveiled at the 2012 Taiwan International Aquarium Expo (probably across from a horrified stall of people selling ultraviolet lamps). We usually picture deformed monsters when we think of bioengineering, but maybe the horror movies were wrong, because these little angels are adorable … or so it seems. What’s the twist? Are they radioactive? Do they eat fingertips? We’ve watching you closely, fish. [Source]
