It's clear, if you think about it very carefully, that it would be impossible to breed a goat that had spider silk protein in it. There's no way that mutation would occur under any natural circumstance, no matter how you bred them. Randy Lewis, a professor at University of Wyoming has done otherwise; designed goats that can be used in spinning spider silk.
