Yamanaka's method, which is referred to as "Cellular Reprogramming," obtains pluripotent cells, similar to the ones we know exist in the very early stages of the embryo.Since such cells are obtained by transforming existing cells of the body (such as skin cells), they are referred to as induced pluripotent stem cells, or iPS in short.

A long life and lots of children—that was quite a common aspiration until not so long ago. But the world of animals reveals that high fertility and longevity are often mutually exclusive: Particularly animals with shorter lifespans are often very fertile while animals that live longer frequently produce fewer offspring. It seems that organisms with limited resources can be either long-lived or very fertile—but they can't be both at the same time. Scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Biology in Plön have now discovered how the trade-off between survival and fertility works. They have found that the average age at reproduction is a measure for the loss of fertility as life expectancy increases.

NO-HASSLE EDITING For the first time, scientists gene-hacked an animal’s stem cells — without removing them.
Normally, altering a stem cell with CRISPR requires extracting it, keeping it alive in a lab setting, and hoping that the edit takes after re-inserting it into the body. But now Harvard scientists have found a way to skip that process, according to researchpublished in the journal Cell Reports. Their new technique alters the genomes of stem cells in a mouse’s body — and spreads the edits throughout the creature’s body as cells reproduce.
In the long run, the new technique could be used to gene-hack genetic conditions into nonexistence by editing them out of stem cells that then propagate throughout the body, replacing diseased cells as they go — a concrete step toward treating DNA as just one more type of code to hack and rewrite.
