Research shows early embryo similarities across six different mammal species

20 June 2022

A cross-species analysis of energy metabolism in mammalian embryogenesis Cells of the early mammalian embryo face a unique challenge: to produce large numbers of progeny quickly while regulating appropriate cell differentiation in a short amount of time. The regulation of energy metabolism is crucial for these processes...

Molecular 3D-maps unlock new ways of studying human reproduction

16 June 2022

Scientists have identified the biochemical signals that control the emergence of the body pattern in the primate embryo. This will guide work to understand birth defects and pregnancy loss in humans. The study also provides a crucial reference for foetal tissue generation in the lab. Such tissue is in short supply but is...
