Transgenic fish research

Professor Terry Bradley's development of the first transgenic trout with enhanced muscle growth has generated attention from around the world. It is being discussed on hundreds of blogs and websites, from National Geographic, The Economist, and Popular Science to Genetic Engineering News and The Daily Mail in England. It was also the subject of Voice of America and Reuters TV reports that aired worldwide and one on Channel 10 news that later turned up on TV stations around the U.S. The URI-produced video of his work is a YouTube hit, with 20-times as many viewings as any other URI video -- in less than a week!
