    most of my working life.  They can only do it one replicable step at a time.

    The steps may spring from inspiration, but that's the simple part.

    •  In a way this seems to have solved (0+ / 0-)

      a problem - immune rejection - that was already solved in the past 3 or 4 years with the development of iPSCs.

      Or course, there is considerable debate within the scientific community whether iPSCs are functionally equivalent to ES cells . . .

      Overall, they both probably have their strengths and weaknesses so it's good to have both options available - you know, kinda like when you go to vote and can choose Dem or Repub . . . .
