Live mice grown from stem cells (iPS) Answered

According to a news article on Nature's Web site, two different research groups have grown live mouse clones using "induced pluripotent stem cells" (iPS). These are initially normal adult cells which are treated such that they revert to the same state as embryonic cells.

Is it just me or has this area of research advanced at light-speed over the last few years?

Or do I just live under a rock?

It's not just you. Progress has been extremely rapid, and there has been a tremendous level of publication. However, results are only picked up by news outlets once in a while, so you probably wouldn't have noticed the smooth development.
