Baby born in Mexico to three parents

I've commented on this before (http://britishgenes.blogspot.co.uk/2015/02/uk-to-allow-creation-of-three-parent.html) with regard to UK legislation which will facilitate this also, but the era of three parent babies may be now well and truly upon us. New Scientist magazine has announced the successful birth of a baby five months ago in Mexico, facilitated by a team from the United States using the controversial technique to overcome the challenges posed by a prospective mother's mitochondrial disease.

For more on the story please visit the New Scientist website at https://www.newscientist.com/article/2107219-exclusive-worlds-first-baby-born-with-new-3-parent-technique/.

Genealogy could be about to get a whole lot more interesting...
