Researchers Make History By Creating The World's First Fully-Functioning Artificial Embryo-1

British researchers make history by creating the world’s first fully-functioning artificial embryo

For the first time ever, researchers have successfully grown a fully-functioning embryo in the laboratory using two different kinds of stem cells. As important step towards creating artificial life, the breakthrough could enhance our understanding of how life actually begins. The process, according to the scientists, involved growing stem cells in a gel-filled Petri dish,…
