Lab creates'synthetic' embryo with brain, heart 

British scientists built a "synthetic" embryo with a brain & heart. 

It includes neural & gut tubes that protect the spine & intestines. 

The "world first" could reduce donor shortages & miscarriages. 

Reduces animal testing. Without fertilised eggs or sperm, Cambridge University researchers employed mouse stem cells. 

"Our mouse embryo model develops a brain, a beating heart, & all the body's components," stated professor Magdalena Zernicka-Goetz. 

We've come so far, it's astonishing. This has been our community's desire & concentration for a decade, & we've finally done it." 

It grew muscles, a gut, & a nervous system, revealing how tissues originate & hereditary disease origins.
