Normally, news involves something that is, as the name implies, new. But this week, attention was given to a problem in biology that is anything but new. There have been decades of warnings that researchers sometimes perform studies using cells that have been misidentified—presented as liver cells when in fact they're derived from the spleen, for example. As cell lines are shared and studies build on earlier work, this misidentification has the potential to cause wider problems in the scientific record.
Despite decades of warnings and the existence of a database of problematic cell lines, the problem isn't going away, as emphasized by a study released last week. The new analysis estimates that as much as 10 percent of the papers in the biological sciences may be influenced by cases of mistaken cellular identity. And it's hard to ascribe this to anything other than carelessness and overconfidence on the part of biologists.Mistaken identity
How do you end up with the wrong cells? There are a variety of ways. Often, new cell lines are made from tumor or tissue samples. If the sample is not 100-percent pure, there's a chance that something other than what you expect could grow out. In addition, some tumors can be misidentified—assumed to be lung if they're found there, but the tumor may actually represent a metastasis of a cancer that started in some other tissue. While there are ways of identifying a cell's source (typically, checking the battery of genes active in the cells will indicate its origin), this hasn't been done as consistently as it should be.

One of the original not-quite-a-sedans is back with a whole new look.
A slew of major companies—including tech giants Uber, Intel, Facebook, and Google—are forming a bloc to seek Congressional immigration reform.
According to Reuters, which first reported the news late Thursday evening, the companies will band together under the name "Coalition for the American Dream" and seek support to extend Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).
This Obama-era executive action allowed "Dreamers," undocumented immigrants who arrived as minors, to register with the government and legally study or work without fear of deportation. The newly organized Coalition appears to be unrelated to an Oklahoma-based group founded in 2006 that shares the same name: Coalition for the American Dream. (The Oklahoma group also "advocate[s] for and protect[s] the rights of disenfranchised immigrants and new Americans from all nations.")
Verizon’s long-rumored live TV streaming service appears to be having some issues.
Bloomberg reported this past March that the telecom giant was planning to launch an online TV service that would ostensibly compete with the likes of Dish’s Sling TV and AT&T’s DirecTV Now over the summer. A couple months later, Verizon CEO Lowell McAdam seemed to confirm that the company had its eyes on an over-the-top service, one that may use its new Oath brand.
But no new service ever came to pass, and now Bloomberg reports that Verizon is targeting next spring to try its luck in the growing online TV market. The report cites technical issues, staff turnover, and complications in programming rights negotiations as reasons for the delay, and the story notes that this is “at least” the second time the Web-based service has been delayed internally.
