Using pigs and baboons to try to generate organs and therapies for humans has proven historically unsuccessful, yet scientists keep trying. Given the high failure rate and questionable ethics, are there viable alternatives? Dr. Jarrod Bailey from the Center for Contemporary Science debunks the bad science of genetic tinkering and explores exciting and promising new technologies.
