>scientists have genetically engineered goats with spider DNA that can produce silk through their milk


>there are now about 30 spider goats at a university-run farm

This is the coolest thing ever though I do wonder how long the goats will live. And if as they continue to breed, will there be any gene mutations (if that's the right word to use). Like goats with eight legs.

You don't understand biotech anon. They only selected for the silk producing gene through editing and transferred it to the goat

It's not gonna get 8 legs, 8 eyes or any crazy shit like that

Lame. In the future I think goats with more spider like features would be useful to producing this steel webbing. Imagine farms of spider goats, you can just walk into a barn and harvest their web milk.

nope

aww.

really made me realize that if bloodsucking aliens or whatever actually wanted to conquer earth, all they'd have to do is disguise themselves as something small and fluffy.

I find this quite sad. Why can't we just work on creating better synthetic materials instead of fucking with nature? It reminded me of how they proposed creating pig/human hybrids so that they could harvest their organs. People only found that creepy because they'd have human DNA in them (and I guess they were then somehow able to…empathise?) but growing human ears on mice and finding new ways to create freakish, giant animals to get more meat out of them is somehow…fine?
