Baby born to two dads and no mom!

Okay…it was mouse, using stem cell technology, but the headline would be no less striking with the addition of “mouse dads.” This is literally A Brave New World.

Using stem cell technology, Texas researchers have created mice who have two genetic fathers – an advance that could give same-sex couples their own genetic children one day.

Rather than have the usual chromosomal assemblage from a father (XY) and a mother (XX), these mouse babies carry daddy-only chromosomes from two males.

“It has been a weird project, but we wanted to see if it could be done” in mice, says developmental biologist Richard Behringer from the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center.
