What was THE breakthrough in the biological sciences in 2006?
In my view it was a breakthrough in gene therapy for Duchenne muscular dystrophy:
Alter J, Lou F, Rabinowitz A, Yin H, Rosenfeld J, Wilton SD, Partridge TA, Lu QL. Systemic delivery of morpholino oligonucleotide restores dystrophin expression bodywide and improves dystrophic pathology. Nat Med. 2006 Feb;12(2):175-7.
Google gives me this rhyme:
They now know how
To clone a cow.
Is pretty scary.
And what about breakthroughs expected in 2007?
