Low flatulence sheep
When you rack up advances in science research benefiting humanity I don't think developing fart-reduced sheep will be at the top of the list . Don't the Kiwis have real problems that can be addressed with their research dollars.
"The study used the large sequencing and data analysis capabilities of the Joint Genome Institute to look at the occurrence, abundance and expression of methanogen genes between low and high methane-emitting sheep identified from flocks in New Zealand," said AgResearch scientist and project leader Dr Graeme Attwood.
