Has anyone even tried this? Why not? What are the barriers? The obvious ones, that of actually getting the material into the ova to be fertilized and of triggering cell activation without a actual sperm present seem to have been solved, though they are in much need of refining, in animal cloning experiments. Are their other barriers, other things lacking in the genetic material of a oocyte that a sperm or a undifferentiated diploid cell posess, that would prevent this? Or do we simply not know enough yet?
