This is the world’s first successful attempt at producing a genetically modified reptile. The researchers from University of Georgia, USA had used CRISPR-Cas9 to fertilize the immature eggs of anole lizards and produce four pink albino… Continue reading Introducing the world’s first gene-edited lizard, an albino
