A team of scientists in China has successfully generated offspring created from the DNA of two same-sex mice. This is the first time such a feat has been accomplished with mammals, and it could have huge implications for humans. In a paper entitled “Generation of Bimaternal and Bipaternal Mice from Hypomethylated Haploid ESCs with Imprinting Region Deletions,” recently published on ScienceDirect, the scientists describe the incredibly complex process. In creating same-sex offspring the team worked with both bipaternal (two dads) and bimaternal (you guessed it, two moms) DNA sequences with varying degrees of success. The offspring resulting from bimaternal DNA, edited…
