Animal testing is cruel, so let's replace it with tests on tiny human bodies.
Swedish bioengineers figure out how to grow grey matter in a laboratory setting. Nothing bad will ever come from this.
The man working on some of the most cutting-edge tech projects in the world is now entering the world of bioengineering by backing an effort to create edible, lab-grown beef.
A patient on dialysis has just received a one-of-a-kind blood vessel.
Hannah Warren is the youngest person to ever receive a trachea made from stem cells.
Rat families worldwide rejoice. Humans still stuck on the waiting list.
Medical technology is advancing rapidly thanks to computers, but it's taking a while for all that nifty computerized medicine to make its way inside our bodies. Humans aren't generally compatible with electronics, but that may change with the invention of...
Rather than belabor the point that the rest of the Internet is wrong to call this artificially bioengineered construct a "jellyfish" as opposed to a "sea jelly," we're just going to get straight to the heart of it: it can swim, and it's powered by heart muscle cells harvested from rats.
These blobs are Mycoplasma genitalium, a bacterial parasite which lives in your naughty bits and makes it burn when you pee. Scientists at Stanford and the J. Craig Venter Institute have honored this monster by making it the first complete organism to have its entire genome modeled inside a computer program.
Wanna shoot lasers out of your eyeballs? We're getting close: scientists have finally done something useful for a change and stuck some glowing jellyfish genes into human cells and created living green biolasers.
