As mentioned in the introduction, our blog’s life span is limited. In fact, it has already come to an end. The EiT course is finished, and therefore also our blog. Through working with the blog we have learned a lot … Continue reading
In our project we wanted to explore how far certain countries have come in stem cell research. When comparing Iran, Norway, South Africa, South Korea and The United States of America we raised the question: How far has each country … Continue reading
These cells can develop into any of the cells found in adult organisms and are formed from the inner cell mass in the blastocyst, about 5 days after fertilization. These are among the most important in stem cell research because … Continue reading
Therapeutic cloning is the manipulation of genetic material from either adult, zygotic or embryonic cells in order to alter the functions of cells or tissues for therapeutic purposes.
The first stem cell was isolated in 1998 by a research group led by Dr. James Thomson at the University of Wisconsin. The same group also developed a technique for growing the cells. This happened only 13 years ago, which … Continue reading
Reproductive cloning is the manipulation of genetic material in order to achieve the reproduction of a human being and includes nuclear transfer or embryo splitting for such purpose. The living being is a genetic replica of the source of genetic material.
