Chinese scientists create gene-edited pigs with immunity to Aids-like virus

  • Researchers say technique can be used to engineer hogs with other desirable qualities, such as leaner meat and suitability as organ donors for humans
  • Their method can modify two traits in one generation, saving time and money during the breeding process
