Modification to HeLa cells

Post by Navin » Tue Feb 27, 2007 3:23 pm

The HeLa cell line derived form cervical cancer cells of Henrietta Laques.
Were any modifications done to those cells in order to allow them to grow indefinitely in culture conditions.

Also in tissue culture, what does the term "transformed cell" mean?
Botany is the study of what? Bottoms!
