Scientists have created a human-pig hybrid.
You never know what people strive to achieve.
So want to paint.
Others wants to be president and others want to create human-animal hybrid creatures.
Scientists at the Salk Institute injected a pig blastocyst with human cells.
A blastocyst is that massive cell that occurs after the fertilisation of and egg.
But before, it is classified as an embryo.
The blastocysts were placed back into pigs and the embryos removed 3-4 weeks later for analysis.
A total of 186 were collected.
This is the first successful human-animal hybrid ever made.
Okay, so why on earth would anyone decide to do this, other than attempting to create a real life Porky Pig?
The paper explaining all of this was published in the journal, Cell.
The researchers say this could be used to study human development and disease.
Additionally, this could produce functional human tissues.
Other attempts to create a hybrid has used mice as the host animal.
The scientists say that using ungulates like pigs and sheep could help in designing new drug screening methods.
For those of you wondering, Salk institute did not receive any government funding for this project.
Any money used for this project was through private donors.
