Science Weekly (CMN)—In a stunning admission today researchers at Bukwang-jo Pharmaceuticals in Seoul South Korea have offered an apology for an experiment with Stem cells that "just went too far".
Lead scientist Dr. Hyo Suk Leuen, M.D., Ph.D. from Seoul West University Hospital and his team were investigating the endemic South Korean Fur Seals unique ability to grow fur in extreme wet conditions-for possible military applications.
Their experiments with DNA swapping and stems cells also centered around the Asian Caterpillar.
"Ten weeks ago we went to Phase Three", a tearful Dr.Leuen said at a national press conference attended by some of the worlds top DNA specialists. "What came out of that test tube was fully mobile, and began to grow at an alarming rate".
His research team suddenly realized they had created one of the worlds first seal/caterpillar hybrids. Dubbed the "Leuen Seal-Cat", the unlikely hybrid remains at the labs and continues to shed all over the place.
Dr.Leuen and his team have no immediate plans to create another creature.
