The human-pig hybrid — dubbed a “chimera” for the mythical creature with a lion's head, a goat's body and a serpent's tail — was “highly inefficient,” the researchers cautioned. But it's the most successful human-animal chimera and a significant step toward the development of animal embryos with functioning human organs.

"Scientists Create a Part-Human, Part-Pig Embryo — Raising the Possibility of Interspecies Organ Transplants" is from the January 26, 2017 Speaking of Science section of The Washington Post. It was written by Sarah Kaplan and narrated by Sam Scholl.
