    How Much Is The Glowing Monkey In The Window?   Feb 2, 2002
    The thought of glowing monkeys created by inserting a jellyfish gene has some animal-rights types howling. They shouldn't worry so much: Experimentation on transgenic primates will be kept in check by simple economics. A transgenic mouse, for example, costs researchers about $170, ten times the price of a normal mouse. Glowing monkeys? They could cost $300,000 each. Animals that glow green in blue light have existed for years. This year, Chicago artist Eduardo Kac says that a glowing bunny (pictured) was produced by French scientists at his request. Transgenic animals as a group are two decades old. The first scientist to try to make a glowing monkey, Gerald Schatten of Oregon Health Sciences University, says he didn't think his work was going to be noticed by the media. It was, however: Schatten's announcement in the Jan. 12 issue of Science magazine that a transgenic monkey had been born made headlines. (Forbes)
