The article focuses on the controversy embryonic stem cell. It was in 1998 when James Thompson grew the first embryonic stem cell in laboratory, in which it inspired several researches to regrow spines or rancor. Thompson says these cells gives everyone the access to all the bits of the human body which never happened before. Meanwhile, Nobel Price winner Martin Evans who discovered stem cells in mice 30 years ago says there is a lot of opportunity here but also a lot of ignorance.

    Background: Compared to the emerging embryonic stem cell (ESC) gene network, little is known about the dynamic gene network that directs reprogramming in the early embryo. We hypothesized that Oct4, an ESC pluripotency regulator that is also highly expressed at the 1- to 2-cell stages in...
