[ Watch the Video ] A team of scientists from Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) have created the world´s first chimera monkeys in the lab using embryos of several individuals and implanting them into female monkeys. The research, to be published online in the journal Cell this week, provides significant information about how early embryonic stem cells develop and take part in formation of the primate species. The team from OHSU´s Oregon National Primate Research...

WOBURN, Mass., Aug. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- U.S. researchers using CRi's Oosight(TM) imaging system have developed a gene transfer technique that has potential to prevent inherited diseases passed on from mothers to their children through mutated DNA in cell mitochondria. The research, which demonstrated the technique in rhesus monkeys, appears in the Aug. 26 issue of the journal Nature. The group, headed by Dr. Shoukhrat Mitalipov of the Oregon National Primate Research Center and the Oregon...
