Early human embryos may be naturally prone to making mistakes in chromosome allocation to new cells, according to a report by Bedford Stem Cell Research Foundation scientists. Their new findings indicate rapid increases in total genetic information may be more important to embryo survival than accurate allocation of genetic information to each new cell. These first time data come from 8-Cell stage human embryos that have
