This is a pretty interesting story. Found a link to it on Slashdot this morning.

Two women in China have been found to have HIV immune “mutant” genes. Apparently, these genes were previously known to exist only in caucasians.

Too bad we can’t use any new stem cells here in the U.S. to get more of these “mutant” genes. Stem cells will save us all if they’re ever given the opportunity…stupid congress.
