Of Mice and Women

Carlos Velazquez

Scientists playing God again. This does not portend well for the future of society and/or humanity in general.

Japanese researchers have been able to change the DNA of a male mouse skin stem cells by altering the sex chromosome from XY (male) to XX (female) and placing them in artificial mouse wombs and later fertilized the cells with male mouse sperm and implanted the fertilized cells into female mouse surrogates and 7 mice pups were successfully created.

Quoting: "Process of reprogramming male DNA: The announcement elucidates that the pathway to producing the two-fathered rodents commenced with reprogramming skin cells from male mice into induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells. Through a complex process, the XY sex chromosomes within the cells were transformed into XX chromosomes. Subsequently, the cells were nurtured within an organoid created to imitate the environment of a mouse ovary. Following this, sperm from male mice was used for fertilization, and out of 630 embryos implanted into surrogates, seven mouse pups were successfully delivered."

Scientists craft healthy mouse pups from two male DNA, not female

2 These guys have never seen Jurassic Park or any other such movie, methinks.

It's a bad idea for numerous reasons.

I think most of this DNA manipulation we're doing these days is a bad idea. It's going to bite us big time.
