I read an article about the guys doing this a few months ago. They're trying to genetically engineer a pig that, instead of producing the 'normal' type of fat usually found in mammals, and swine specifically, they will store it as an Omega-3/6 acid, like Tuna. They're also trying to tinker with the nutrients and whatnot present in their bodies.
The result? HEALTHY PORK. That's right. Bacon that helps you loose weight. Carnitas that trim pounds and make you feel good.
Will they succeed? I have no clue. The green coloring, however, is NOT a side-effect, it's something they're adding to help market it. Get it? GREEN
