Oddly enough, though, the country already has a government ban on their cultivation – likely as a means to protect its land from potential GMO dangers while still ‘benefiting’ from GMO foods. […]

Scientists Use Stem Cells To Grow New Human Hair In The Lab

Next step: transplant stem-cell-derived human dermal papilla cells back into human subjects (any volunteers?) Sanford-Burnham scientists grew human dermal papillae cells from stem cells. A method for initiating human hair growth — using human pluripotent stem cells to create new cells — has been developed by Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute (Sanford-Burnham) researchers. Their idea is […]

The Real-Life Matrix: MIT Researchers Reveal Interface That Can Allow A Computer To Plug Into The Brain

It has been the holy grail of science fiction – an interface that allows us to plug our brain into a computer. Now, researchers at MIT have revealed new fibres less than a width of a hair that could make it a reality. They say their system that could deliver optical signals and drugs directly […]
