Sea Cucumbers -- they're not just for dinner anymore

Far from being a mere oriental delicacy, Sea Cucumbers are turning out to be the hottest new miracle organism -- not only are they being investigated to help regenerate our organs and bring eyesight to the blind, they may be able to stop the spread of malaria with transgenic mosquitoes, which could save millions of lives. Genetic engineering at its best.

How cool is that?
