Science Is Just Whatever Scientists Do...

Over 30,000 Published Studies Could Be Wrong Due to Contaminated Cells

This is very, very bad.

Researchers warn that large parts of biomedical science could be invalid due to a cascading history of flawed data in a systemic failure going back decades.

A new investigation reveals more than 30,000 published scientific studies could be compromised by their use of misidentified cell lines, owing to so-called immortal cells contaminating other research cultures in the lab.
