Growing the kidney: re-blogged from Science Bitez

Hi guys,
I've set-up a new science/education blog called Science Bitez so I'll be blogging from there from now on!
Here's my first Science Bitez post:
On 4 February 2015, researchers at the University of Edinburgh have done something amazing – they’ve grown a mouse kidney in the lab!

But, that’s not the amazing part… The researchers have isolated a chemical that tells these cells to form the specialised structures in the kidney, known as nephrons.
