A female-founded Israeli startup called Embryonics is setting out to change this by using artificial intelligence to screen embryos.

Gene changes, or mutations, seen in the newly studied twins suggest that embryos don’t split neatly in half when twins form.

Of those, 38 pairs were genetic duplicates of each other, but most had some differences in DNA that probably arose very early in development, either just before one embryo split to form two or shortly after the split.

Because the mother worm contributes the same number of proteins to every embryo, small embryos have high concentrations of proteins and large embryos have low concentrations.

In any case, Keenan said he’s confident that the 27-year-old embryo will not be the oldest ever brought to a live birth.

Most controversially, a scientist in China edited genes in human embryos.

Without endosymbionts, more than half the embryos failed to develop at all.

The commission also specified that before human germline editing is considered, no other way of ensuring a couple can produce embryos without the disease-causing genetic variants should be available.

That said, it’s possible virus bits could become embedded in an embryo’s genetic material if a virus’s RNA or DNA makes it into sperm or an egg.

Some of those eggs contained wriggling embryos and a few eggs hatched, the team reports June 22 in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
