Scientists generated mice eggs from the cells of two male mice

A team of scientists from Kyushu University in Fukuoka, Japan, recently made a groundbreaking realization when they generated adequate mice eggs from the cells of two dads.

The progress made may foreshadow a way for gay couples to birth biological children of their own.

Additionally, the discovery could also improve the chances of infertile women who wish to become pregnant.

The study was led by Katsuhiko Hayashi, a developmental biologist and college professor who is internationally known for the advancements he has made in the practice of lab-grown eggs.

Last week, Katsuhiko Hayashi shared his team’s findings at the Third International Summit on Human Genome Editing at the Francis Crick Institute in London, where he stated his belief that his life-changing concept could be clinically transferrable to humans within the next decade.

The scientist also expressed his support for the technology used to enhance the probability of same-sex couples birthing offspring before indicating that an influential decision would have to be embraced by society beforehand.
