Reports on ANDi, the Rhesus monkey born with an extra gene taken from a jellyfish, which resulted from work at the Oregon Regional Primate Research Center in Portland, Oregon. Concern about ethical questions surrounding the species-mixing experiment; Mention of transgenic research that led to the genetically modified primate; Explanation of how the experiment was carried out.
