“While we knew our liver tissue showed metabolic activity and basic toxicology results comparable to native tissue, we had to ask the question: could it be predictive of drug problems where other methods have failed? These results demonstrate clearly ...

What Questions About Evolution Come Down to Is, "Who ARE We?" - Discovery Institute

Discovery Institute
Real (and imagined) "human evolution" is now so integral to our culture that demand outpaces authenticity. The disappointing history of Sahelanthropus, Orrorin, and Ardi, all hailed in 2001 as human ancestors, attests to the frustrating search for ...

Developmental biology: It takes muscle to make blood cells - Nature.com

Nature.com
Blood stem cells derive at least in part from an embryonic vessel called the dorsal aorta. It emerges that a flanking tissue called the somite contributes cells and signals to this process. The extrinsic cues that instruct cells to become blood-cell ...
