So! Mature cells may be reprogrammed into stem cells. Does this put the stem cell controversy to rest?
The Nobel Prize for Physiology goes to two researchers who discovered a way to convert regular cells into stem cells, and from stem cells into other cell types.
As you may know, stem cell research has its share of controversy, centered around the human embryos from which the stem cells are harvested. This development apparently dispenses with needing the embryo.
Do you suppose that this practice will become widespread? Do you foresee an end to hostilities on this matter?
