Genetically Modified Monkeys: Progress or a Step Too Far?
The journal Nature reports the creation of the first genetically modified (GM) primate that is able to pass that modification on to its offspring.

This result is proof of principle that genes can be successfully inserted into primates and is being heralded by some as a new era for creating more human-like primate disease models to find much needed therapies.
