Inside a food research lab, a single muscle cell divides into two. Two divide into four, and four divide into eight.
In some ways, what’s going on is a non-event; scientists have been growing cell cultures for decades. But for farm animals, the work going on here—and in several other labs dotted around the globe—could not be more important.
If these researchers succeed, their work will do more to protect animals than all previous animal advocacy efforts combined.
