Top models

Speaking of mammals (see the end of my previous entry), not even rats and mice always cut it when it comes to providing good models of human disease. Take, for example, cystic fibrosis. There are a couple of mouse models of the disease (we have published at least one of them), but the community does not seem to be satisfied with them. It is therefore great to see a pair of papers in the JCI reporting on two new attempts at generating the ideal model of cystic fibrosis.
