you might want to look at the work of David Ledbetter (NIH-Genome
Research). I think there's at least one of his articles in Nature
Genetics. It turns out humans are imprinted as well as mice-you must
inherit one copy of certain genes from your mother and the other from
your father, or things go very wrong (severe mental redardation, etc).
Therefore, parthanogenesis, at least with a healthy outcome, is not
possible in humans.
