As unusual as it may look, Scientists in China are creating a breed of ‘super dogs’ with increased capabilities through a gene-editing technique to that of a normal canine in order to cure faulty genes that cause, for example, Parkinson’s Disease in human, in one of our weirdest stories of today.

The work builds on Chinese research that used gene editing techniques to create two “super beagles” with much more muscle mass than their relatives.

The Chinese and South Korean teams are primarily using the technique for medical research but it’s already being used to recreate beloved pets that have passed away.

According to the bizarre report, Okjae Koo at biotech company ToolGen has found a way to eliminate faulty genes that cause, for example, Parkinson’s Disease, using CRISPR gene editing. The new ‘super dog’ breed strangely developed by cloning technique at the Guangzhou Institute in China enabled South Korean scientists to create two beagles from cloned skin cells altered by gene editing.

These ‘super dogs’ may be superior to normal canines but the purpose of the research is not for increased strength or speed, but to solve genetic issues.

The work could also see a scientist solve the problems of inbreeding in pedigree dogs from South Korea – and the techniques used could one day be used to eliminate genetic problems in humans too.
