The content of the press conference was incredibly ridiculous. They announced or answered as follow (cnt'd) cc @pknoepfler @cells_nnm

1) They refuse to analyze any frozen samples of STAP (stem) cells in RIKEN because "they are believed to be true" cc @pknoepfler @cells_nnm

2) Dr. Niwa will engage in reproducing experiments on STAP for a year with two tecs who will be newly hired cc @pknoepfler @cells_nnm

3) Dr. Obokata and Dr. Sasai were excluded from the team because they seem to be unable to conduct it cc @pknoepfler @cells_nnm

4) Rectraction of the Nature papers should be decided by corresponding authors themselves, not RIKEN's matter cc @pknoepfler @cells_nnm

5) Dr. Niwa said he only saw "Oct4-GFP like fluorescent signals" as a success of STAP (cnt'd) cc @pknoepfler @cells_nnm

5') He also said coauthors believed STAP when Dr. Obokata brought samples as "produced from it (looks Oct4-GFP+)" cc @pknoepfler @cells_nnm

The fact RIKEN refuse to analyze frozen samples of STAP was really bad. Only Teru's frozen samples will work. cc @pknoepfler @cells_nnm

In my own opinion, RIKEN seems to conceal something with refusing any analysis on frozen samples of STAP. cc @pknoepfler @cells_nnm
