US scientists have used stem cell technology to create mice from two fathers, an advance they say could help preserve endangered species and even help same-sex couples have their own genetic children one day.
In the study, published in the journal Biology of Reproduction, reproductive scientists in Texas were able to manipulate cells from a male (XY) mouse fetus to produce an induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cell line.
