Excerpt: Theres good news in the fight against farm pollution, say researchers in the Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics at the University of Guelph in Ontario, Canada. In August, John Phillips, Cecil Forsberg, and Serguei Golovan announced a new kind of pig that makes better use of phosphorus, a nutrient that in high concentrations can deplete oxygen levels in waters downstream. Phosphorus runoff from livestock farms has been blamed for killing aquatic life and creating algae blooms in lakes and rivers. By identifying a gene that promotes recovery of phosphorus in a pigs digestive tract, Phillips and his colleagues say they have devised a pig that pollutes less.
