A donor-conceived Dutch woman, Emi Stikkelman, is the first to find her sperm donor using an American commercial DNA bank, Dutch newspaper de Volkskrant reports.

A giant scanner has been successfully used to sort 'good' sperm from 'bad'.
The team at the University of Sheffield hope their technique might one day help develop diagnostic tests and treatments for male infertility.
Mouse sperm stored aboard the International Space Station (ISS) for nine months has been used to produce healthy pups back on Earth.
Japanese researchers sent freeze-dried sperm to space to understand the long-term effects of microgravity and radiation exposure on mammalian reproduction and development. The sperm were stored at -95ºC, with researchers also using 'ground control' sperm from the same mice, stored in the same conditions on Earth for the same duration.

Fully functional 3D-printed ovaries have been successfully implanted in mice for the first time - enabling them to have healthy offspring.
A team led by researchers at Northwestern University, Illinois, removed ovaries from female mice and replaced them with bioprosthetic ones that were capable of ovulating. The mice became pregnant naturally and gave birth to pups that thrived with their mothers' nursing.
