Powerful technique for multiplying adult stem cells may aid therapies

... assays determining if the virus has landed in any undesirable places," says Lodish. "They could then discard those bad cells, and only administer the good ones to the patients." But most importantly, these findings aid basic research. "We want to know all sorts of things, like what genes are active in this ste...

Sweet 'water taste' paradoxically predicts sweet taste inhibitors
