Monkey World Domination Is At Hand! Researchers at the Oregon National Primate Research Center have published a paper in the science journal Nature documenting their attempt to clone rhesus monkeys. Of 100 embryos, about 20 were successfully implanted (though not gestated to birth). It is the first such success with any primate, and represents a huge leap forward in cloning technology. The team hopes that their success will translate into improved techniques for therapeutic cloning for humans. Of course, this means that any evil genius worth his salt will be stealing this technology immediately to breed his own race of warrior monkeys for total world domination. I, for one, welcome...well, you know the drill.
