In_japan: It a published paper. You write your results along the methodology to obtain the said results. It's out in the open, when published. This is how scientific advancement works. Other teams working on stem cells cannot reproduce her results with her methodology. She doesn't need do it herself. Fighting RIKEN seems pointless. She should concentrate on helping other teams to reproduce her results if she is not. Her career and reputation are at stake.

I don't understand why she isn't trying to help other teams to reproduce her results instead of using laywers, press conferences to fight Riken. If she isn't doing it that means she is problably guilty of forgery.
