Eggsellent! No yolk! I'm running, fried, to tell people about this before the news gets poached by some eggregator

All those getting boiled by this comment, I'm scrambling to come up with some way to coddle you, but I'm coming up goose-eggs

I think you used up the Fark yearly pun limit, in one post, good jorb, Punny McPunnington.

I like my eggs ovaries-y.

This worked for mice.  Years ago, someone managed to created "fatherless mice", but this wouldn't work for humans because we have some sort of sex-based epigenetics going on where different genes are enabled or disabled depending on which parent they are inherited from; for some reason this is not an issue in mice.  I wouldn't trust ovary-less human ova either.

But this isn't fatherless mice. It's just converting a stem cell into an ovum that is then fertilized with a sperm as usual.

Sigh.  No, it is the other side of the issue--ova produced without ovarian tissue.  Have all of the appropriate genes in those ova been enabled or disabled by the methylation of DNA the same as if they were produced by ovarian tissue?  Mice can't tell us that.  We won't know until someone tries this with human stem cells and human ova.  Stem cell sperm are a bust for humans, why would stem cell ova do any better?

Well, using this technology someone could make an infinite amout of you's from one cell.

When combined with cloning tech already available of course.
