Korean Cloner Failed at SCNT, Succeeded at Parthenogenesis

Disgraced South Korean scientist Hwang Woo-Suk wasn't able to create a human embryo using the cloning technique somatic cell nuclear transfer but it appears parthenogenesis was what helped him create his stem cell line according to a new study from George Daley.

I wish this article would mention some of the other problems related to Woo-Suk's work including getting eggs from his female researchers, his lying about how many eggs his team used, and his embezzling of $3 million dollars.
