GM chickens lay eggs with anti-cancer properties

Jan 29, 2019 15:39 IST

Researchers at the University of Edinburgh's Roslin Institute have genetically modified chickens to lay eggs that have medicinal properties. The eggs have large amounts of high quality proteins along with anti-cancer and anti-viral properties. Laboratory tests confirm that the eggs work as equivalent to drugs and can be produced at more affordable prices, since chickens can lay up to 300 eggs every year. However, it will take decades of research before it becomes a medicine.
