THE SUBJECT WAS ROSES

From The Tennessean: Two biochemists researching cancer and Alzheimer s disease drugs at Vanderbilt University have made a startling discovery quite by chance -- and it could prove to be the grand prize for rose lovers yearning for that elusive blue rose. The pair of researchers took a gene from the human liver and added it to bacteria. Surprisingly enough, the bacteria turned blue, causing the HGTV set to rejoice at the prospect of producing the hitherto unheard-of blue rose which, as everyone knows, makes an ideal gift for Alzheimer s patients everywhere.
