Insights into the development of sperm and egg cell precursors in the embryo

Researchers at the Babraham Institute have investigated the early stages of the development of cells called primordial germ cells and developed strategies to generate 'lookalike' cells in the lab. The generation of human 'lookalike' primordial germ cells is of importance for future fertility studies and the analysis of potential transgenerational epigenetic inheritance in humans.
