Researchers successfully hatch a rare bird from the egg of a chicken

Researchers successfully hatch a rare bird from the egg of a chicken | Science, Technology, Internet | Scoop.it

Researchers from the Central Veterinary Research Laboratory in Dubai say that have just successfully hatched a rare bird species from the egg of a chicken. In a development being heralded as a major advancement for conservation, a team of scientists have proven that embryonic transfer from one bird species' egg can successfully develop in that of another. Fertilized yolk from a houbara bustard, a threatened desert bird native to the Middle East, was placed into the 'white' of a surrogate chicken egg.

Tiny human brain models grown in lab with tiny cortex, tiny hippocampus (video)

Tiny human brain models grown in lab with tiny cortex, tiny hippocampus (video) | Science, Technology, Internet | Scoop.it

Through stem cells, the Institute of Molecular Biology (IMB) in Austria has managed to grow some tiny (3-4mm) human brain models that include parts of the cortex, hippocampus and retinas. The lab-grown tissue will allow researchers to peer into the early stages of human brain development in far higher detail than ever before.
