First Human Hybrid Created By British Scientists

Despite ongoing ethical storm, (which in my opinion is ridiculous taking into account what possibilities this research holds) scientists have created the first part-human, part-animal embryo.

A team at Newcastle upon Tyne University inserted human skin cells into the hollowed-out egg cells of a cow – and jolted the egg into life.

The resulting embryo, which will eventually be used to investigate and treat diseases, survived for three days.
