French twins Vincent (R) and Thomas Seris shop for food in a commercial centre in Bordeaux, November 12, 2014. Born with Xeroderma Pigmentosum (XP), Vincent Seris and his twin Thomas cannot be exposed to the sun and its ultraviolet (UV) light, which could provoke precocious cancers due to a autosomal recessive genetic disorder of DNA repair. Colloquially referred to as Children of the Night (Les Enfants de la Lune) the Seris twins are among 70 to 80 people in France who suffer from the genetic defect. The French association "Les Enfants de la Lune" reports that there are between five and ten thousand such cases in the world. Thomas and Vincent have been testing a new protective mask for the last year which is transparent and ventilated and developed by several hospitals in France. Picture taken November 12, 2014.

Four Greenpeace activists climbed the monument to demand that Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto's government reject the commercialisation of genetically engineered (GE) corn seeds in Mexico. Genetically engineered corn does not exist in Mexico yet, but Greenpeace says, multinational firms have requested permission to plant their seeds in the country.

China's first cloned pig, stuffed and displayed, is seen in front of a researcher working at the Beijing Genomics institute in Shenzhen July 23, 2010. China's population is projected to grow to 1.44 billion by 2030 from 1.33 billion in 2009, according to the World Bank, and Beijing is hunting for cutting-edge technology to feed its people and provide better quality food.

A net attempts to pick up genetically engineered angelfish (Pterophyllum) from a tank at a fish farm in Pingtung, southern Taiwan, September 16, 2010. The fish, the world's first fluorescent angelfish, were created by a joint project between Taiwan?s Academia Sinica and Jy Lin, a private biotechnology company. The breed is the world's largest fluorescent fish which are able to mate and reproduce, said Lin Yu-ho, Chairman of Jy Lin. The fish are expected to be sold at around $30 after certification.

Demonstrators wearing masks depicting Britain's Prime Minister David Cameron, protest against cloning animals for food, in London August 6, 2010. Britain's food watchdog said this week it had found that meat from the offspring of a cloned cow had entered the UK food chain and had been eaten, stirring controversy over whether such products are ethical. The Food Standards Agency (FSA) said that under European rules, suppliers are supposed to obtain a licence before selling products from cloned animals but added there was no suggestion they posed any health danger to consumers.REUTERS/Suzanne Plunkett (BRITAIN - Tags: POLITICS CIVIL UNREST FOOD IMAGES OF THE DAY)

Security guards stand in front of a gate of the Swiss Fort Knox bunker in the mountains near the Swiss Alpine resort of Saanen May 17, 2010. In a secret bunker deep in the Swiss Alps, European researchers on Tuesday deposited a "digital genome" that will provide the blueprint for future generations to read data stored using defunct technology. The high-security digital storage facility, near the slopes of upmarket ski resort Gstaad, will ensure that a time capsule containing an encyclopedia of data formats threatened by obsolescence will remain safe from man-made and natural disasters for years to come.
