STATEMENT ON GENETIC ENGINEERING OF HUMAN EMBRYOS
June 10, 2015
Genetic engineering in animals is a process that has engendered great excitement as well as great anxiety. The technology is used to study developmental processes (using small animals such as the mouse, zebra fish, fruit fly, worm, etc.), determine gene function, and mimic human and animal disease processes. Perhaps the greatest promises of this technology are to develop and test drugs and to perfo... read more
Ultra-superovulation in C57BL/6 mice: 100 oocytes/female30 May 2015.
Last September, in Buffalo (USA), at the CARD-RPCI Mouse Sperm and Embryo Cryopreservation course organized by Naomi Nakagata, Aimee Stablewski and Jan Parker-Thornburg, Naomi Nakagata himself presented the preliminary results of an amazing achievement in Reproductive Biology they had accomplished at the University of Kumamoto (Japan), namely: the obtention of more than 100 oocytes per C57BL/6 female after devising a new protocol for superovulation, a method they introduced as ULTRA-superovu... read more
