Complete Meiosis from Embryonic Stem Cell-Derived Germ Cells In Vitro

Bhaskar Chanda Stem Cell In vitro production of haploid gametes could provide a treatment for infertility, but recapitulating meiosis in culture is a significant roadblock. Zhou et al. report the generation of haploid male gametes from mouse ESCs that can produce viable and fertile offspring, demonstrating functional reproduction of meiosis in vitro.
