Stem Cell Information at the NIH

It had slipped my mind - perhaps due to the activities of certain oily political appointees - that the National Institutes of Health maintains an informative website on stem cell science. To date, it seems to have remained moderately untainted by politics. Parts of the FAQ page are dodgy, but I wouldn't expect an NIH website to acknowledge the damage done by federal policy on embryonic stem cell research...

In any case, the section that introduces stem cells is a good primer for those who are new to the underlying science, or want a better grasp of the terms of the debate.
