EMBL scientists show that mammalian life begins differently than we thought

On July 16, 2018, Posted by , In News, By , , With Comments Off on EMBL scientists show that mammalian life begins differently than we thought

It was long thought that during an embryo’s first cell division, one spindle is responsible for segregating the embryo’s chromosomes into two cells. EMBL scientists now show that in mice, there are actually two spindles, one for each set of parental chromosomes, meaning that the genetic information from each parent…
