Genetic Engineering & Biotechnology News: Third Option for Stem Cell Research Emerges - Parthenogenesis Could Sidestep Some of the Moral and Immune Rejection Issues
Remember this term: Parthenogenesis. This six-syllable word could be the answer to controversy-free stem cell research. Though the general public is well aware of the medical potential and controversies surrounding embryonic stem cells and iPS cells (induced pluripotent stem cells), a third way forward—parthenogenesis—has been surprisingly sidelined from the stem cell research debate.
