Genetic Advances To Pioneer Super-Human Elite?

Life extension researchers create 500 bio-mice with extraordinary capabilities but stress that to apply the science to humans would be "completely wrong"

New scientific research into life enhancing genetic modification is paving the way for a near future where humans are able to live far beyond today's average life expectancy, but in the hands of the wrong crowd this could spell disaster.

Scientists have genetically engineered 500 "super mice" that can run further and faster, live longer and reproduce for longer with the view to one day applying the same science to enhance the performance of human athletes.
