      A Crown science institute is expected to get the go-ahead today for
      controversial research involving insertion of human, mouse, deer and goat
      genes into cows.

      The Herald understands the Government's gene science watchdog, the
      Environmental Risk Management Authority (Erma), has given Hamilton-based
      AgResearch approval to carry out the work.

      The two broad objectives of the application are to develop "transgenic"
      cattle that carry therapeutic proteins in their milk and to develop
      transgenic cattle to study gene function and genetic performance,
      AgResearch says.
