Skin: The New Stem Cell?

This is way interesting. The thought that skin cells can be turned into a heart is mind-boggling, actually. I really can't even comprehend it, but I want to. Wow.

In related news (science being the relationship, just in case people who accuse me of being random wondered) this article is also interesting as it discusses the discovery of gene mutations that seem to indicate the existence of specific diseases. I'm not sure whether it's great to be able to find this kind of stuff out, or really scary.
