Japan Will Fund Stem Cell Research of Human Skin, NHK Reports

U.S. and Nipponese scientific squads each inserted four genes
into the tegument cells, switching on a procedure that born-again them
to a word form equivalent to embryonal root cells. The cells were
then changed into heart, brain, muscle, fat and gristle cells
by one squad using proved methods for growing tissue from
embryonic cells.
