February 18, 2016 – A recent article in Science highlights new research from reproductive biologists at the University of Hawaii, Honolulu, who have produced male mice lacking a Y chromosome. Monika Ward and colleagues developed the engineered males from mice with a single X chromosome via genetic manipulation on the X chromosome and another chromosome. This led to the creation of male mice capable of immature sperm production. Read more
