Unformatted text preview: Once the researchers had obtained success in these two objectives they needed to come up with an efficient method for genetically modifying the stem cells produced. Through their findings the researchers demonstrated that bovine somatic cells could be de-differentiated after genetic modification resulting in genetically modified embryonic stem-like cells. The demonstration of this opens the possibility of using these somatic cells in cell therapy and studies of differentiation. How I found the article: Using Google Scholar I used the keywords chimeric, transgenic, animal, and research. I then when down the list of articles, chose one that looked promising and looked at the journal’s page for online submission. Seeing that there were instructions not only for how to submit research articles but also for how to review them I came to the realization that this was a peer reviewed journal and thus a viable, though slightly old article....
