Researchers from the University of Virginia have made a scientific discovery: they figured how to turn stem cells into full blown fish embryos! That means, scientists can control embryonic development. And that means, they could potentially grow organs or an entire organism from stem cells.

"We have generated an animal by just instructing embryonic cells the right way," said Chris Thisse, who made the discovery with her husband Bernard. She added, "If we know how to instruct embryonic cells, we can pretty much do what we want."

The researchers think it is possible to manipulate the signals to direct the formation of organs, which in this case, will mean great things for people on the organ donor waiting list.
