Viral DNA was used to introduce a gene for a green fluorescent protein into monkeys, creating a new line of "glow-in-the-dark" transgenic primates for drug research work. The ethical questions are obvious. Oh, by the way, drug researchers love this. Possibly better research, more drugs, more sales!!!).
