Some weeks ago a post explained the history of HeLa cells, including an
explanation for their name, which in fact has nothing to do with Henrietta
Lacks. I would appreciate a repost for the benefit of a colleague working
with tissue culture.  Any relevant literature citations would likewise be
appreciated. Danke.
