H1, H2, H3, N1, and N2 occur in most of the known viruses that affect humans. Individual influenza A viruses are named by giving the subtypes of HA and NA—for example, H1N1 or H3N2. The virus that causes the avian influenza that has been in the news for several years is H5N1. The presence of the H5 protein affects humans, but so far to a lesser extent than the other HA subtypes. It does, of course, affect birds, with many fatalities among chickens, ducks, and geese. When the avian flu first broke out, it decimated flocks of domestic fowl around the globe.

Affected by these cancer-predisposing mutations. In 2006, extensively studied protein-encoding genes were sequenced using tissue samples from cancer patients. Breast tumors and colorectal tumors were used in the study because they are among the most common cancers. As Figure 2 shows, several rounds of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) amplification and subsequent sequencing were needed to accomplish this task. Sequences of the same genes in normal tissue were used as controls. Another part of the task was to select the somatic mutations in individuals that are characteristic of cancer and to distinguish them from germline mutations that are passed on to succeeding generations.

The most recent comparisons of iPS cells and traditional ES cells indicates that ES cells are easier to differentiate into target tissues than their iPS counterparts, as shown in Figure 3.
