Discuss: Cloning, Chimeras and Stem Cells
« on: 05/11/2009 10:57:06 »
This week on the Award Winning Naked Scientists we find out about stem cells and cloning. We discuss the elusive 'stemness' that allows cells to specialise, and learn about cloning in the post-Dolly the sheep era. We also find out how genetics has revealed that  neanderthals were redheads, how soap affects shoals of fish and some turtles come equipped with anti-roll bars. We also pay a visit to the Manchester Science Festival for a chat with Johnny Ball, and in Kitchen Science, we "clone at home" and find out the future of the humble banana.

Johnny Ball on the show! Excellent, takes me back to being a kid. was it that long ago? I remember Johnny visiting my middle school back in '82, i doubt he does, but i remember that day like it was yesterday...or maybe the day before.
