In dramatic fashion, it looks like total victory for the slime molds over the human derived HL-60 leukemia cells! It must be a satisfying vindication for Dicty Nation as they celebrate a billion years of evolutionary perfection for amoeba-hood everywhere over the upstart human cancer cell challengers. No love lost for these little human mutants though – good riddance.
New video lifts the podium hopes of three teams: #11 (Faix – Germany), #12 (van Haastert / Kortholt – Netherlands), #17 (Kimmel – US). Watch the video closely for clues to contenders in the Fastest Cell question! But don’t forget that three teams have yet to be broadcast including some pre-race favorites. These are #1 (Queller – US), #18 (Kay – UK), # 14 (Müller-Taubenberger – Germany).
