The future just sounds more fun by the day. Now in a first, scientists are claiming they can make babies without the need for female eggs.
How does it work you ask? They trick the sperm.
Researchers at University of Bath have succeeded in mice by using chemicals to trick their sperm into believing it was fertilizing an egg when, in fact, it was a lab-created “pseudo-embryo” manufactured from basic cells.
They were able to achieve a successful pregnancy in one out of every four tries. The mice they “created” through this process were able to grow up and have healthy babies of their own, overturning 200 years of scientific knowledge in one go.
Dr. Tony Perry told BBC: “This is the first time that anyone has been able to show that anything other than an egg can combine with a sperm in this way to give rise to offspring.”
