"According to an article published by the BBC, Chinese firm BGI has
refined cloning procedures to the point where they can produce 500 pigs per year
, performing two embryo implantations per day with a 70-80% success rate. Much of the operation is concerned with producing genetically-engineered animals for research. The biotech firm's other work includes million-individual-scale animal and plant genetic sequencing."
