Hi,
	Someone in our laboratory posed the following question: If a cell is
plucked from lets say the liver (or any other tissue for that matter), is
there any way to ascertain how many times that cell has undergone cell
division?
	We look forward to receiving your comments. Please E-mail either
myself (mvarela at medusa.unm.edu) or Kent who posed the question
(kent at triton.unm.edu).  Thank you in advance!!!
