I said and modified only once my position that Stem Cells is a great idea but the technology isn’t there.
Well a South Korean scientist seemed to have made the science happen……SEEMED
The panel said Friday it found that “the laboratory data for 11 stem cell lines that were reported in the 2005 paper were all data made using two stem cell lines in total.”
To create fake DNA results purporting to show a match, Hwang’s team split cells from one patient into two test tubes for the analysis – rather than actually match cloned cells to a patient’s original cells, the university said.
“Based on these facts, the data in the 2005 Science paper cannot be some error from a simple mistake, but cannot be but seen as a deliberate fabrication to make it look like 11 stem-cell lines using results from just two,” the panel said.
I have to wonder if the politicizing of the science lead to this
