Submission + - UK scientists create three-person Franken-embryo (bbc.co.uk)

Troll-Under-D'Bridge writes: The BBC reports that British scientists have manufactured embryos containing genetic material from a man and two women. Under the procedure developed by scientists from Newcastle University, the nuclei from a father's sperm and a mother's egg are transferred into a second woman's egg "from which the nucleus had been removed, but which retained its mitochondria". The research, which may "help mothers with rare genetic disorders have healthy children", used embryos left over from IVF treatment.
