    I don't get it. I mean, I get it, but I don't get it...... Why would we mix our genes with those of animals? How is that any different/better/more ethical than using human stem cells? maybe I'm just internetted-out....

    This is the important part.

    "Finding better ways to make human embryonic stem cells is the long term objective of our work and understanding reprogramming is central to this," said Armstrong, who helped to create the world's first cloned human embryo in 2005.

    "Cow eggs seem to be every bit as good at doing this job as human eggs so it makes sense to use them since they are much more readily available."

    The research involves transferring nuclei containing DNA from human cells to animal eggs that have had nearly all their genetic information removed.

    The resulting embryos are therefore mostly human, with a small animal component.

    Stem cells, which can grow into different kinds of tissue, are then formed.

    Once their own nuclear DNA is removed and replaced with DNA from a human cell, they become effectively human. The only "animal" element left is the tiny amount of DNA housed in the mitochondria, rod-like power plants outside the cell nucleus that generate energy.

    The embryos could give researchers a large supply of stem cells to work with.

    Scientists have had to rely on human eggs left over from fertility treatment, which are in short supply and often poor quality.

    I still don't think I'd want my kids to have hooves.



    "The resulting embryos are therefore mostly human, with a small animal component."


    Do we got to choose the part? Can my kid have a tail? 7 stomachs?

    but think of all the money you would save on formula if the kid could chew its own cud!
