Latest In vitro meat Stories
The same scientific advances that have made it possible to cultivate stem cells into laboratory-grown organs could one day be used to develop eco-friendly meat products, according to new research appearing in the latest edition of the journal Trends in Biotechnology.
In a world's first, Prof. Mark Post of Maastricht University and colleagues are preparing to consume a lab-grown burger and the event will be shown live this afternoon.
With some monetary help from the Dutch government and tens of thousands of bovine stem cells, the world's first test tube burger will be served up at an event in London next month.
Using only stem cells, researchers have managed to grow a strip of muscle tissue in a Petri dish with the aim of eventually developing techniques for the mass production of eco-friendly lab-engineered meat.
The future of your backyard BBQ may be a bit different from what you are used to if researchers have their way.
