The United Kingdom parliament has approved the controversial procedure called "three-parent" in vitro fertilization.
The three parent gene technique has been used to successfully create a human embryo and its subsequent birth.
Mammalian embryos were developed successfully aboard a satellite from China.
New findings published in Nature Communications suggest that embryo "squishing" could improve IVF success rates, researchers say. This would be particularly helpful for couples hoping to conceive via in-vitro fertilization, as only about 30 percent of embryos implanted for in-vitro fertilization res...
British scientists have been given the okay to use a controversial gene editing technique. They've been given permission to edit the genes of human embryos for research, which some say will one day lead to "designer babies."
An shrimp-like creature known as 'Waptia' from 508 million years ago was identified by researchers, who found eggs containing preserved embryos in the creature's body.
Girls and young women who undergo cancer treatments may have to worry how these might impact the future of their fertility.
For the first time ever, scientists have mapped all of the genes that are activated in the first few days of a fertilized human egg.
Researchers from China have announced that they've managed to edit the gnome of a human embryo in order to try to block a gene that causes a rare blood disease.
Spanish researchers at the Centro Nacional de Investigaciones Cardiovasculares (CNIC) have found that during the early stages of mammalian development, embryonic cells embark on a battle for survival. Through this battle, the less active of these cells are eliminated by their stronger sisters.
