Stem Cell Wars Continue

The race continues between scientists desperately seeking a rationale for harvesting human embryos and those who say, having adult stem cells and iPS cells available, they are unnecessary – and their use is unethical.

The Holly and the I.D. – News from Epigenetics

Holly leaf shape may be due to epigenetic control – one of several recent developments in the field of epigenetics.
