Last year, a researcher from Shenzhen dropped a news bomb, announcing that he had successfully altered the genes of newly born twin girls. This shocked the scientific community, as genome-editing is frowned upon in many countries, being considered unethical and potentially harmful not only for the individuals affected but also future generations.

Axar.az reports citing El-Pais that Spanish researcher Juan Carlos Izpisua's team has managed to produce the first-ever chimeras of a human and monkey in their laboratory-based in China, a biologist at the Catholic University of Murcia (UCAM) Estrella Nunez, who worked with him mentioned. The scientist is reported to have injected human stem cells into the monkey embryos to grow organs for transplantation.
