     I Am Working On A Report On Molecular Biology And Genetics. And I 
Saw A Report On The 11:00 O'clock News About Two Or Three Months Ago. 
The Report Was About How Scientists Are Now Taking Human DNA And Joining 
It With Mouse DNA To Grow Organs That Will Later Be Removed And Grafted 
To Humans... They Said That They Were Using This To Help Burn Victims, 
And To Replace Lost, Or Damaged Parts Of The Human Body. I Have Been 
Fruitlessly Searching For Information On This. Using Both The Internet 
And The Library. And I Have Been Unable To Come Up With Any Information 
At All... I Would Appreciate It If You Could Supply Me With Information 
And Pictures If Possible. Thank-You... -Jason Caldwell
