represents a big victory for scientists as the world's first cloned mouse from iPS cells, was highly praised by an expert at Britain's Roslin Institute where the first cloned mammal Dolly was born

I was always eating out, but I got bored with the animals that restaurants offered," Mr. Zhang says during an interview over a plate of BlackBean Rat. "I wanted to open a restaurant with an affordable exotic animal. Then I was walking home one night and a rat ran across in front of me and gave me this idea."
I wonder if clone rat taste as good as rat the ole' fashion way.

Cloned rat isn't as gamey.

But it goes really well deep fried in panko crumbs, with some bbq sauce.

Defintely BBQ and serve it with black eyed peas, turnip greens and corn bread to give it some soul.
