Hybrid monsters
« on: 07/11/2006 17:34:35 »
The gutter press seems to have made very little of the news that Bovine eggs are to be inoculated with Human skin cells in the hope that blastocysts will develop from which stem cells can be extracted.
I expected horrified banner headlines but there were not any, anyone with any biological knowledge will know that that far from being hybrids the blastocysts will contain little or none of the Bovine genetic materiel except perhaps some microcrondhia.
