Aids Research: Glow Cat

"Cats that have been genetically modified to glow in the dark are being used to gain insights into Aids.
"The scientists inserted one gene into the cats that helps them resist the feline form of Aids.
"They also inserted a gene that produces a fluorescent protein called GFP, Nature Methods journal reports."

BBC News (and all papers).
Technically I think they only glow under UV lights - so they'd be the very thing to take to a homosexual nightclub.
Want one!
