Lab-Grown Smell Receptors Could Pave the Way for Artificial Noses

Anosmiacs, rejoice. MIT’s biological engineers, moving us ever closer to our transhuman future, have mass-produced lab-grown smell receptors — a breakthrough that will greatly increase their ability to study the way these proteins react to odor. Their goal is not only to unlock the secrets of olfaction, but also to… »10/01/08 7:00am10/01/08 7:00am
