Korean cloning researchers are showing off again. This time they apparently succeed in cloning cats with modified genes.

The cat in the left on the photo is a 10 month old cat with a red fluorescent protein that glows when exposed to ultraviolet rays in a dark room. The Korean researchers manipulated the cat genes to make the skin color red, inserting red fluorescence protein (RFP) into the skin tissue.
Now, if they put on some colored cat nail caps the freaky cat would be complete.
Via the Chosun.
