GLOW IN THE DARK BUNNY

Mutant bunny

A mutant glow-in-the-dark rabbit is at the centre of a transatlantic tug of war between an artist who claims he dreamed her up and the French scientists who created her.
Alba was born in February at the National Institute of Agronomic Research (INRA) in Paris. Edouardo Kac planned to display Alba in Avignon, and then take her to live with his family in Chicago. He intended his green fluorescent bunny project to encapsulate the theme of biotechnology and its relation to family life and public debate.
But the institute is refusing to hand her over.
