GM calves bred to beef up flavor

Scientists in Beijing confirmed they have successfully bred two genetically modified (GM) cloned calves for the first time in the capital Tuesday.  The calves are both healthy, professor Ni Minhong, the lead researcher on the GM cattle cloning project, told the Global Times Tuesday. Both were born at the Comprehensive Experimental Base of Beijing University of Agriculture in Daxing district, one on July 19, and one on August 1, he said. While the ultimate aim is to market the meat to consumers, there will still be considerable obstacles in terms of cost, health issues and also public opinion, experts in the field told the Global Times.
