Healthy mice from same-sex parents have their own pups

Brave New World. Don’t try this at home:

For the first time, researchers have used the DNA from two mouse mothers to create healthy pups, some of which matured and had their own offspring. The scientists also produced baby mice using the combined genetic material from two fathers, although those pups only lived for a couple of days.

The method the team used to create the pups, described in a study published on 11 October in Cell Stem Cell, reveals important genetic factors necessary for the development of healthy embryos. But scientists are sceptical that the technique could ever be applied to people.
“I don’t think it’s going to lead to people genetically having two mothers or two fathers as a routine thing,” says Spradling. “We don’t understand it well enough, and it might be too risky to take it that far.”
