Came across this the other day- http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-19879113
Pretty interesting news article. What would be the consequences of this? Imagine a world where you can become the father or mother of a child even if your sperm or eggs would not allow you to do so naturally by taking another of your cells and turning into a cell carrying the right DNA to create a child?
Amazing technology that could give infertile couples another option in the aim for a child. However, although the research has worked on mice, there is a long way to go until this technique could even be thought of to be used in IVF on a daily basis, the scientists involved have set themselves a target of 2 years to create usable sperm and 5 years for eggs. I wish them all the very best of luck!
What are your thoughts on this?
