  1. I love them both, actually. But I’m not sure that the stem cell technique they’re using is really less controversial than simply using ESC since they’re still using blastyocytes. And the people at NYU need to sample more volunteers. Six is barely more than a case series and there may be more bacteria to be found in normal human skin.

    Always ready to serve.

    Given that only four out of 182 species were common to all the subjects, I’d say it was a fair certainly that there are many more waiting to be discovered. Plus I wouldn’t expect the same species to be found on the forearm as, say, in the armpit, on the scalp, on the face, near the anus/genitals, or in other places.
