Re: Mistaken Identities Plague Lab Work With Human Cells

I can understand that mistakes are made.

Only laziness explains the rest. Scientists who don't keep up with the work in their field need to find something else to do. (The same goes for doctors, but I fear if all those who do not keep up were forced out, we'd have a much bigger doctor shortage on our hands.)
