Scientists at a small biotechnology company say they have used cloning to create human embryos from the skin cells of two men.
The work represents a step toward the promise of creating personalized embryonic stem cells that could be used for medical treatments. Although the embryos grew only to a very early stage, the work could also theoretically be seen as a step toward creating babies that are genetic copies of other people.
