The technology isolates fluorescent protein in a certain species of jellyfish DNA and combines it with the pigs DNA to make something that mother nature never intended.

According to researchers, the technique is being developed to help create medicines and therapies for patients in a more cost-effective manner. Eventually, genetically engineered animals might be used to produce beneficial enzymes for such maladies as hemophilia. “[W]e can make those enzymes a lot cheaper in animals rather than a factory that will cost millions of dollars to build,” said Dr. Stefan Moisyadi of the University of Hawaii’s Institute for Biogenesis Research in a statement. Fortunately, the piglets involved can still expect to live full lives.
