A forensic geneticist takes a blood sample for DNA testing in the San Gerardo church in Iguala, Guerrero November 18, 2014. People with missing relatives provided blood samples to test if remains found in different mass graves around Iguala correspond to those of their missing relatives. The remains were found during the search for 43 students teachers of the Ayotzinapa Teacher Training College Raul Isidro Burgos, who have been missing since clashes with the police on September 26.

Researcher Fabien Guillemot checks human cells after a bio- 3D printing with laser in the laboratory Biotis at INSERM (the National Institute for Health and Medical Research) in Pessac near Bordeaux October 29, 2014. Producing human tissue will become possible thanks to a team of Bordeaux researchers developing a new technique for bio- 3D printing with laser precision. Human tissue 3D printing will have future applications in cosmetics, pharmacology and surgery soon, especially in the field of skin transplants. Picture taken October 29, 2014.
