Pig cloning for organs

...be only a matter of months before they genetically engineer piglets without either copy of the GATA1 gene. The next step will be to test the organs by transplanting them into non-human primates. "We think if everything is successful with what we think are the major issues, in two to three years we'll be able ...

Bioengineering production strains - Microbia develops new methods

...entists at Microbia had used a systems approach to engineer the microbial circuitry that regulates metabolite production.
