Elvis Mice Have Presley's DNA

Way cool. Think of the possibilities.

As a pop comeback, it's certainly among the more unusual. Royal College of Art graduate student Koby Barhad's project All That I Am features genetically-engineered mice with DNA taken from the hair of Elvis Presley. The aim is to explore a range of philosophical and ethical issues.

How about a cat that contains some Marilyn Monroe DNA?

The possibilities are endless. Take a small portion of a departed loved one's DNA and get it put into a new puppy.

I know what you narcissists are thinking: Put your own DNA into pets and plants. Imagine a pet who has your eye color because it contains your genes for eye pigment control.

It seems inevitable that humans will make their pets more intelligent.
