Retraction in SCIENCE[edit]

Yes, this is an embarrassing retraction, but one should guard against exaggerating its importance. Although the glycosylated amino acid is important for medical applications, it's still just one amino acid; as of now more than FIFTY unnatural amino acids have been successfully incorporated into genetic codes using Schultz's method, and documentation for all except the retracted one IS available.

UPDATE: Someone has removed the section on the retraction. Hey, I was not calling for the section on the retraction to be REMOVED; just saying it's not the end of his career; he's still on the short list for the Nobel Prize. SingingZombie (talk) 17:11, 15 December 2009 (UTC)
"Someone", it should be noted, with an IP address belonging to The Scripps Research Institute. --192.82.128.76 (talk) 18:29, 7 January 2010 (UTC)
The content was unsourced, and not exactly neutrally phrased. It was correctly removed per WP:BLP, irrespective of who did it. Rockpocket 06:10, 26 January 2010 (UTC)

Bioassays, soluble molecules, microcultures[edit]

Described apparatus for high-throughput bioassays of many compounds on small cell-colonies in microwells, 1536 wells per plate. Included PNAS reference which is on very topical subject: de-specializing cells, inducing pluripotency without using genetic material like DNA, RNA, retrovirus etc. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 207.237.243.185 (talk) 05:41, 26 January 2010 (UTC)
