Yeast to Clone Obama

Artist Using Yeast to Clone Obama, Gaga, Jesus: On September 13, artist and "experimental philosopher" Jonathon Keats will have some of the world's most famous people at his exhibition opening at New York's AC Institute — including Lady GagaMichael Phelps, and Barack Obama — in the form of yeast-based clones he's developing from cultures based on the celebrities' various diets. "It's a new way of thinking about cloning," Keats said. "Genetics is not the whole story, the breakthrough field is epigenetics." (See the video below for a clip of Keats talking about what it means to be an "experimental philosopher.") [Discover News]
