    I think this provides a good example of how genetic codes can be altered to produce dramatic changes in a species. Much in the same way that cabbage, kale, broccoli, cauliflower, and Brussels sprouts all were derived (evolved) from a single wild plant species or how all modern domesticated dog breeds were derived from wild wolves.
