  • BioEdge: Ancient mammoth blood gives new life to de-extinction project
    277 attempts The discovery has reignited debate over the ethics of cloning At a conference at Stanford Law School last week experts debated the ethical legal and political implications of de extinction Beth Shapiro of the University of California at Santa Cruz expressed concerns about the difficulty of cloning and the inevitable creation of countless deformed and terminal ill animals I think we should consider deeply why we want to de extinct things she said Kate Jones of University College London said that Conservation biologists worry that if people think we can revive species they won t care about protecting what s left The scientific community also questions the involvement of disgraced South Korean scientist Hwang Woo Suk Hwang s Sooam Biotech Research Foundation is one of two institutes working with the blood samples In 2005 Hwang made international news when he faked landmark discoveries in human embryo cloning research He was subsequently charged with fraud and embezzlement MORE ON THESE TOPICS cloning de extinction This article is published by Xavier Symons and BioEdge under a Creative Commons licence You may republish it or translate it free of charge with attribution for non commercial purposes following these guidelines If you

  • BioEdge: Jinxed? Problems with landmark paper on human cloning
    under scrutiny once again Kevin Eggan of Harvard University told ScienceInsider The researchers say that the duplication was unintentional and that these minor errors will not affect the validity of the results Cell was also criticised for approving the paper so quickly it was accepted in only four days and published in another 12 The four day review process was obviously inadequate Arnold Kriegstein director of the stem cell programme at the University of California San Francisco told Nature It s a degree of sloppiness that you wouldn t expect in a paper that was going to have this high profile One worries if there is more than meets the eye and whether there are other issues with the work that are not as apparent Even if the researchers did manage to create a cloned embryo it is no longer the big news that it once was As the Boston Globe pointed out The emergence of reprogrammed stem cells the difficulty of the involved method and the obstacles to obtaining donor eggs for the procedure all make the advance more an important technical feat than a game changer for stem cell scientists or a platform for new therapies As a sign of the times the leading lobby group for therapeutic cloning wound itself up this week and merged with another organisation The president of the Coalition for the Advancement of Medical Research CAMR told its members in an email Given the progress we are seeing in the field of regenerative medicine the policy issues we now see go beyond the historical focus of CAMR MORE ON THESE TOPICS cloning embryonic stem cells therapeutic cloning This article is published by Michael Cook and BioEdge under a Creative Commons licence You may republish it or translate it free of charge with attribution

  • BioEdge: The ultimate surrogate adventure challenge: gestating a Neanderthal
    the media firestorm He explains that this would be a jolly good thing as these ancient people might have genes which would strengthen genetic diversity Here are some extracts from the interview SPIEGEL So let s talk about possible benefits of a Neanderthal in this world Church Well Neanderthals might think differently than we do We know that they had a larger cranial size They could even be more intelligent than us When the time comes to deal with an epidemic or getting off the planet or whatever it s conceivable that their way of thinking could be beneficial SPIEGEL How do we have to imagine this You raise Neanderthals in a lab ask them to solve problems and thereby study how they think Church No you would certainly have to create a cohort so they would have some sense of identity They could maybe even create a new neo Neanderthal culture and become a political force SPIEGEL Wouldn t it be ethically problematic to create a Neanderthal just for the sake of scientific curiosity Church Well curiosity may be part of it but it s not the most important driving force The main goal is to increase diversity The one thing that is bad for society is low diversity This is true for culture or evolution for species and also for whole societies If you become a monoculture you are at great risk of perishing Therefore the recreation of Neanderthals would be mainly a question of societal risk avoidance And what about the extremely adventurous female human Well the media didn t misquote him In fact he mentions her on pages 11 and 148 of his recent book Regenesis How Synthetic Biology Will Reinvent Nature and Ourselves MORE ON THESE TOPICS cloning species revival surrogacy This article is published
