Removal of enhancer 13 DNA strands caused males to grow ovaries and female genitalia, helping research on human sexual development disorders

Scientists have turned male mice into females by snipping out strands of their DNA in work that could shed light on sexual development disorders which arise in humans.

The male mice grew ovaries and female genitalia instead of the more conventional male anatomy after researchers removed small chunks of DNA from the animals’ genetic code.
