    Uruguay has a ‘flock’ of nine six-month ‘brilliant’ lambs which behave as any other sheep but are really genetically modified and are planned to help with medicine research. They were born in a farm belonging to the Animal Reproduction Institute of Uruguay (Irauy) a non profit organization connected to the Genetically Modified Animals Unit from the Pasteur Institute, a branch in Montevideo of the renowned French scientific organization.
