Baby mice made from skin cells and the eggs were made entirely outside body in a dish and procedure should work for humans too

Baby mice made from skin cells and the eggs were made entirely outside body in a dish and procedure should work for humans too, by NextBigFuture.

In a tour de force of reproductive biology, scientists in Japan have transformed mouse skin cells into eggs in a dish, and used those eggs to birth fertile pups. The report marks the first creation of eggs entirely outside a mouse. If the process could be made to work for humans, researchers could produce artificial eggs without needing to implant immature cells into ovaries to complete their development.
