    Here's the latest news from our eminent scientists - we are not much different from mice. Nope, apparently only 300 genes out of 30,000 genes separate us from our mousey cousins!

    Does this mean we'll be seeing Planet of the Mice someday? :)

    I saw an article a few years back where they grew an ear on the back of a mice. This will probably create a new industry where mice are used to produce artificial body parts.

    Sounds gross but if it can save a few lives, I would definitely support it. :p

    Me too! If it works out, it may mean cheaper and more plentiful supply of body parts. Hopefully, it will also undercut the black market on organs.
