World’s first ‘synthetic embryo’: why this research is more important than you think

In what is considered a world first, biologists have grown mouse embryo models in the lab without the need for fertilized eggs, embryos or even mice – using only stem cells and a special incubator. This achievement, published in the journal Cell by a team led by researchers at the Weizmann Institute of Science in …

Synthetic Mouse Embryo Models From Stem Cells

Without Eggs, Sperm, or Wombs: Synthetic Embryo Models May Grow Organs for Transplantation

Credit: Weizmann Institute of Science Without eggs, without sperm or uterus: synthetic mouse embryo models created only from stem cells An egg meets a sperm – it’s a necessary first step at the beginning of life. In research on embryonic development, it is also a common first step. However, in a new study published August …
