This can also lead to progress in research for finding the cause for infertility and can also be used to test effects of medical treatment.

Major advances in medical science have been helping doctors save lives over the years. But now researchers are slowly moving forward in the direction of creating life itself in a laboratory.

Scientists have finally made an early form of embryo in a dish by mixing different kinds of stem cells. This process of creating embryos from stem cells can ensure a supply of embryos for medical research.

 

This can also lead to progress in research for finding the cause for infertility and can also be used to test effects of medical treatment. Experts said that it’ll take another two decades to perfect the technique and create human embryos.
