The research has a ways to go, but could be a new breakthrough in stem-cell technology.

It is not only a new breakthrough in stem-cell technology, but also shows the way towards human cloning.

Personally, I found the breakthrough to be fascinating.

I see it as a massive advance, not just in the area of stem-cell research and tissue cloning, but in the realm of gene therapy. The use of retro-viruses for genetic manipulation has always captivated me; this seems like a wonderful extension of that technology.
