Mice produce sperm from monkeys

4 Feb

According to the BBC:

"Mice have been used to produce viable monkey sperm using tissue transplanted from the testes of macaques. The US scientists involved say their work might one day help to conserve animals that are facing extinction. It might also be possible to grow human sperm in mice, although the team agree this would be a controversial move."

Does this creep anyone else out?
