Human blastoids 3.0

Cell Stem Cell. 2022 Jan 6;29(1):8-10. doi: 10.1016/j.stem.2021.12.006.

Abstract

Studying human embryo development is technically and ethically challenging. An improved protocol to generate human embryo-like structures (blastoids) from human pluripotent stem cells (PSCs) (Kagawa et al., 2021) offers innovative opportunities to dissect the mechanisms of human embryogenesis.
