originally, a range of techniques for manipulating oocytes and sperm to overcome infertility; encompasses drug treatments to stimulate ovulation, surgical methods for removing oocytes (for example, laparoscopy and ultrasound-guided transvaginal aspiration) and for implanting embryos (for example, zygote intrafallopian transfer or ZIFT), in vitro and in vivo fertilization (for example, artificial insemination and gamete intrafallopian transfer or GIFT), ex utero and in utero fetal surgery, and laboratory regimes for freezing and screening sperm and embryos as well as micromanipulating and cloning embryos as well as See: eugenics.
