Asteroids, Hemorrhoids, and……Organoids? Oh My!

research paper from International Journal of Biological Sciences describes growing testis in a dish with the eventual purpose of assisting with male infertility. Researches refer to these artificial testis as “organoids” and are derived from the testis of mice.I hope they’re careful not to attempt this in the state of Alabama, where they might be mistaken for actual people.

Since we won’t know when the first offspring resulting from these mice-derived artificial testicles, I’d like to be the first to recommend that they be named Mickey or Minnie.
