Mice from same­sex pair

Otago Daily Times - - WORLD WEEKEND -

Bei­jing: Chi­nese sci­en­tists said yes­ter­day they had used gene edit­ing and stem cell tech­niques to pro­duce healthy mice with two moth­ers which de­vel­oped well enough to go on to have nor­mal off­spring of their own.

In ex­per­i­ments de­signed to ex­plore what makes it so dif­fi­cult for some an­i­mals to re­pro­duce with same­sex par­ents, the re­searchers said mice from two fa­thers were also born, but sur­vived for only a cou­ple of days. — Reuters
