Scientists say they can read nearly the whole genome of an IVF-created embryo
A California company says it can decipher almost all the DNA code of a days-old embryo created through in vitro fertilization (IVF)-a challenging feat because of the tiny volume of genetic material available for analysis. The advance depends on fully sequencing both parents' DNA and "reconstructing" an embryo's genome with the help of those data.
Chinese Scientists Create System to Care For Embryos in Artificial Womb
Parents of the future rejoice! Scientists in China have developed an AI nanny that they say could one day take care of human fetuses in a lab. Researchers in Suzhou, China, claim to have created a system that can monitor and care for embryos as they grow into fetuses while growing inside an artificial womb, The South China Morning Post reports .
