Caption: Genetically-engineered pig hearts. Conceptual computer artwork of pigs in conical flasks, hearts and a strand of DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid). This may represent the modification of DNA (the genetic material that mediates the biochemistry of life) in a pig, in order to allow transplantation of its heart into a human. The modifications should stop the patient's immune system damaging the heart.
