By investigating the evolution of the placenta, my colleague Günter Wagner and I identified several processes that appear fundamental to the evolution of all new organs.
The idea of extending the 14-day rule even makes some people who support embryo research queasy, especially without first finding another clear stopping point.
The 19th century biologist’s drawings, tainted by scandal, helped bolster, then later dismiss, his biogenetic law.

U.K. regulators grant permission to use CRISPR-Cas9 technology in embryos for early-development research.
Where do we come from? By “we” I mean humans in the large spectrum of life. What makes each of us different from every other human, but more like every other human than like any other animal roaming the earth, and, at the same time, somehow connected to all forms of life?
Scientists claim to have created an artificial mouse embryo using two types of stem cells—embryonic stem cells and extra-embryonic trophoblast stem cells, which normally form the placenta.
Technique could also lead parents to create ‘ideal’ future children only –possible impact on society must be planned for now, say specialists
Rapid advances in stem cell and embryo research are in danger of outstripping current ethical guidelines and new regulations are urgently needed, warn scientists...
We know much about how embryos develop, but one key stage -- implantation -- has remained a mystery. Now, scientists from Cambridge have discovered a way to study and film this 'black box' of development. Their results -- which will lead to the rewriting of biology text books worldwide...
Two research teams open new window into earliest stages of human development
The discussion on the status of the human embryo has a long history. We are not likely arriving near to any kind of definitive conclusions. Instead, the increasing complexity of the scientific scenario is provoking the opposite.
As biological research races forward, ethical quandaries are piling up. In a report published Tuesday in the journal eLife, researchers at Harvard Medical School said it was time to ponder a startling new prospect: synthetic embryos.
