Off topic - New "Nanog" gene

Can't help it.  I like this part:

   they have discovered a long-sought "master gene" [the nanog gene] ...
   that is largely responsible for giving those cells [the stem cells]
   their unique regenerative and therapeutic potential.

Is this the equivalent of old-school NANOGers beating up netmonkeys with a
cluebat?  ;-)
