2. Stem Cell Medicine, Ltd., an Israeli stem cell company with breathtaking research and development facilities, made global headlines this week by announcing a partnership to develop genetically-modified muscle progenitor cells.
3. A bioengineer and geneticist at Harvard’s Wyss Institute successfully stored 5.5 petabits of data in a single gram of DNA, smashing the previous DNA data density record by 1,000 times. A petabit is 10^15bits, which makes this accomplishment simply astounding.
