Miscalibrated Internet Receptor Stalks

End of a scandal

Well, this is happening sooner than I thought. Obokata has agreed to retract both research papers which claimed an easy way to make stem cells with adult mice cells.

This is on the heels of the news that genetic test done by an independent group found that the STAP cells "created" from mice aren't even the same strain as the original. At best, her results were due to contamination. At worst, she faked it.

Either way, I am glad that this is done with, and that she will probably never, ever work in science again.
