    Thumbs down Bulk-grow ? in english or spanish

    Good Evening (in my country)

    I'm doing a translation about a "Clon Farm" so I need to know what this word means in this context:

    "The company is trying to BULK-GROW embryonic stem cells taken from fertilised eggs as soon as they're laid."

    Please, it's a very difficult homework that I have to do. Thanks "

    PD: Si alguien me puede hacer la traducción de esa palabra en español se lo agradecería eternamente, gracias, saludos !!!!

    It means 'grow large numbers' of the cells.

    As it's such a new technique, I'd be very surprised if there's a single word for this. The sense is as Tdol said; and when you buy 'in bulk' se dice 'al por mayor', no? Perhaps you can make something up along those lines. I'm afraid my Spanish is Best Before End June 1975.

    It like 'mass production' for cells.
