Scientists believe that Sharks come into existence 400 million years ago. 200 million years before the dinosaurs. They are so ancient, a sub-acuatica, like the Chinese force of nature that balances everything.
Pumas a large cat of the family Felinae. Is native to Americas. It has many names including puma, mountain lion, panther, painter and catamount.
It is fast, silent, dances with nature, hears the music of the wind when deploying tactics, follows a path to conquer a dream, and protects nature by regulating the ecosystems as far and in the heart of the mountains of los Andes in Peru.
Scientists at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign found that the gene editing tool TALEN is up to five times more efficient than CRISPR-Cas9 in parts of the genome called heterochromatin. (LionFive/Pixabay)
So first how can we define CRISPR for Genetic Modification
Gene editing techniques have the potential to substantially accelerate plant breeding. Now, officials in the United States and Europe are arguing that it is not genetic modification — and that is a good thing!
So all organisms created with CRISPR are GMO’s?
Here an answer of the USDA:
The United States takes an essentially functional view of GMOs, not concerning itself with the technologies that created the animals or plants but rather what the effects of the manipulations have been. The USDA statement further clarifies, “Under its biotechnology regulations, USDA does not currently regulate, or have any plans to regulate plants that could otherwise have been developed through traditional breeding techniques as long as they are developed without the use of a plant pest as the donor or vector and they are not themselves plant pests
What animals or plants (or variations) have been created from CRISPR
Is there actually teams of scientists working with animals embryos modified with CRISPR CAS, or working with plants to actually solve the world need for more, quality and healthy food?
China is leading CRISPR research with his: Yunnan Key Laboratory of Primate Biomedical Research.
How to protect animals that are under scientific research?
The most startling part of what is coming out of China is seeing how they have just a brute-force approach. The level of animal support they have to do those experiments is really astounding.Jon Hennebold, Oregon National Primate Research Center

“All of today’s big cat species evolved less than 11 million years ago –just a blip in geologic time time”, yet their evolutionary tree and ancestry, remains as a mystery. “Their ancestry is so hard for us to make out that it’s known as a ghost lineage. We simply don’t have enough fossils to understand their origins.”
How did lions evolve? The common ancestor of the Big Cats dates back 11 million years. But why is the evolutionary history of big cats a mystery?
A century of anatomical and phylogenetic studies have determined that snakes evolved from lizards. 90 million years ago the snakes story begun. The first pre-snake recognized ancestor appeared 90 million years ago in Argentina. But one thing to say: We don’t know where she came from!
I’m really interested on evolution in snakes. How they evolve? Why? How? against what odds? against which species and with the help of whom? how genetics changed and what are their genes capable of?
By te way I made an Snake Identifier iOS app available here.
New white papers and the latest scientific research (Journal Current Biology) has revealed that the birds brain used to be underestimated of its capacity.
Birds intelligence including Crows and Parrots that diverged from Dinosaurs corvids like hominins, evolved larger brains, and can be rival if some range of genes are activated even under certain spectrum maybe in terms of capacity even to hominids.
