I remember hearing about this about two years ago (20/20 I think) and since
that time saw a note in science about it. I also heard there was some
controversy as to the how the science was conducted (the events by which the
discovery took place). I would be interested if someone could point me to
any research papers that might have resulted from study of these people (ie.
has the gene or particular mutation been identified etc...). BTW, thanks to
those who provided refs for directed mutations, I'll put them on my hitlist
for my next library run.
PS I believe that pink grapefruit are also considered to be a novel
mutation. My tastebuds rank that one a real good mutation.
