Quotes

...But, as time ticked on, I thought: "I have the rest of my life to find someone special, but I don't have that much time left to have a child."
...information on this patent application, NewsRx correspondents also obtained the inventors' summary information for this patent application: "The present disclosure provides systems, devices, and methods for delivering a biological material into an organelle of a cell. In one aspect, for example, a method for introducing biological material into an organelle of a cell includes bringing into proximity a lance and a preselected biological material outside of a cell and charging the lance with a polarity and a charge sufficient to electrically associate the preselected biological material with a tip portion of the lance. The method also includes penetrating an outer portion of the cell with the lance and directing and inserting the lance into an organelle, discharging the lance to release at least a portion of the biological material into the organelle, and withdrawing the lance from the cell."
The following quote was obtained by the news editors from the background information supplied by the inventors: "Higher plant embryogenesis is divided conceptually into two distinct phases: early morphogenic processes that give rise to embryonic cell types, tissues, and organ systems, and late maturation events that allow the fully developed embryo to enter a desiccated and metabolically inactive state. Upon reception of the appropriate signals, the dormant embryo germinates, and seedling development begins. Thus, seed maturation and metabolic quiescence interrupt the morphogenetic processes that occur during embryogenesis and seedling development. This unique form of development underlies, in part, a plant's ability to make seeds, a trait that has conferred significant selective advantages to higher plants. Because lower plants do not make seeds and do not undergo embryo maturation, this bipartite mode of embryogenesis is thought to have resulted from the insertion of mutation events into the higher plant lifelife cycle. Little is known at the mechanistic level about how distinct processes that occur during the morphogenesis and seed maturation phases are coordinated."
