2009 Top Ten Innovations

According to The Scientist

This year’s most exciting innovation, announced in April, circumvents the complications that come with the most common technique for reprogramming cells to an embryonic-like state. For the first time, Sheng Ding of Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla, Calif., and his colleagues induced pluripotency in mouse embryonic fibroblast cells using only proteins, avoiding genetic modification altogether.

The others are listed here.

    Can I not read my wonderful Scienceblogs without this jackass and his link spamming? I’ve seen this bullshit about atheists on like 5 blogs today. pzdummy, blow it out your ass, nobody wants to read your insulting bullshit on your crappy site (double-spaced text must give you a boner). Wrath of God, Nostradamus, jesus, throw a little Deepak Chopra in there and you’ll have the trifecta of crap.

    Condemned by an idiot, more likely. Haven’t the Montreal police arrested you for uttering threats yet? At the very least, you should be under observation in an institution somewhere. Anyway, go back to your little cave, troll. Nobody is interested in your trainwreck of a religion. You’ll not get fed any further here, Dennis Markuze.
