How to create a mutant?


More specifically is how hard is to make mermaids for real?

Google search for

  • recombinant animals
  • transgenic rodents

Here is the correct way of asking it: how to create a transgenic organism?

That is a good starting point

Then closer to the desired topic

It is possible to combine several different DNA pieces and then add it two the target organism. Based on paper:

Jackson, D. A., et al. Biochemical method for inserting new genetic information into DNA of simian virus 40: Circular SV40 DNA molecules containing lambda phage genes and the galactose operon of Escherichia coli. Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences 69, 2904–2909 (1972)

Work with plants

  • growing proteins in plants
  • vaccine expressed in plants

Though the best bet would be on this book

I'll go to my library
