Anyway the GFP zebrafish will not likely end up in a petco because like the
round up gene it is patented and designated for research only. There are a
number of expressions of the gene from total glowing animals which look
unreal under black light to ones that only express the gene in growing
neurons. Many useful expressions for developmental biologist but it would
be cool if more people could see them.
They just created the first GFP primate up in Portland Or, a squirrel monkey
or the like. It's getting a little to close to home!

Hey, whatever happened to the zebra danios that someone implanted jellyfish
genes in so they'd glow in the dark. I haven't seen them in Petco yet. I
guess that's not as bad as dyeing glassfish or parrot cichlids!
