How a Canadian 'biohacker' is using apples


A University of Ottawa biophysicist has hacked an apple's cell structure and used it to grow human tissue with a technique he hopes might one day pave the way to low-cost organ replacement.Andrew Pelling and his team recently published a study in scientific journal PLOS ONE that details their experience of biohacking the fruit to not only grow mammalian cells, but actually implant them into the body of a mouse.Pelling’s team say they started using apples because their internal cellular structures are well-suited to the job.

Please help.

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.

  • I've made several videos on the process. The decellularization steps are super easy. It's reseeding it with cells that's the hard part because the equipment is expensive.

  • @chironex is being modest. He also did a great video about decellularizing animal parts.
