GM camels will slash the prices of life-saving drugs.


Genetically modified (GM) camels may play an important role in drug industry. It’s not so far in Dubai to create first GM camels which have been being  tried by a  team of researchers. “We are establishing camel cells modified with exogenous [foreign] DNA, for use in producing transgenic cloned animals, or GM camels, Hopefully we will transfer camel transgenic embryos to surrogate mothers for the first time later this year.”  Said Nisar Wani, head of the Reproductive Biology Laboratory at Dubai’s Camel Reproduction Centre, in the United Arab Emirates.
