Description: In this Science Update, from Science NetLinks, you'll hear about how scientists have reversed the process of cell division, a trick once thought to be as impossible as un-ringing a bell. Molecular biologist Gary Gorbsky explains how scientists have been able to reverse the cell cycle by manipulating the proteins that regulate the process. Science Updates are audio interviews with scientists and are accompanied by a set of questions as well as links to related Science NetLinks lessons and other related resources.
