Latest Somatic cell Stories
Ian Wilmut, creator of Dolly the sheep, says that mammoth stem cells may be the way to go in order to bring the ancient behemoths back to life.
For the first time, Japanese researchers have cloned a donor mouse using a single drop of blood from its tail.
Researchers at Oregon Health & Science University (OSHU) and the Oregon National Primate Research Center (ONPRC) have successfully reprogrammed human skin cells to become embryonic stem cells capable of transforming into any other cell type in the body.
A Japanese research team was able to produce healthy mouse clones able to live a normal lifespan. Unlike previous cloning endeavors, however, these mice can be sequentially cloned indefinitely.
A South Korean who fabricated research on human embryos now claims that he has cloned coyotes for the first time.
Female induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells, reprogrammed from human skin cells into cells that have the embryonic-like potential to become any cell in the body, retain an inactive X chromosome, stem cell researchers at UCLA have found.

The body is a battle zone. Cells constantly compete with one another for space and dominance.
Scientists have overcome a key barrier to the clinical use of stem cells with a technique which transforms regular body cells into artificial stem cells without the need for introducing foreign genetic materials, which could be potentially harmful.
The mice obtained by researchers at UAB, in addition to being the first of their species cloned in Spain, are the first animals to survive at birth and develop correctly.
