Scientists Grow an Eye in a Petri Dish [Video]


    A Japanese research team has successfully grown a “rudimentary” mouse eye in a petri dish using stem cells. This has many implications for future research and curing blindness. Above is a time-lapse video of the stem sells spontaneously organizing into an “optic cup”—the precursor to an eye. Now they need to grow a little pair of Ray Bans in a petri dish and we'll have the coolest mouse in the world. [Video via The Guardian] More
