"From the Ted Talk by Andrew Pelling: This scientist makes ears out of apples"

Unscramble the Blue Letters

Andrew Pelling: That's right — it's an apple. Now, I actually want you to notice as well that this is a lot redder than most apples. And that's because we grew human cells into it. We took a totally innocent Macintosh apple, rmveoed all the apple clles and DNA and then implanted human cells. And what we're left with after removing all the alppe cells is this cellulose slocaffd. This is the stuff that gives plants their shape and texture. And these little hleos that you can see, this is where all the apple cells used to be. So then we come along, we implant some mammalian cells that you can see in blue. What happens is, these guys start multiplying and they fill up this etnrie scaffold.
