NY Times Part 2: In Vitro Meat?

From the New York Times Dot Earth blog: the first international conference on manufacturing meat took place recently. The process involves growing cell cultures in vats as opposed to raising and slaughtering animals. The conference was held in Norway by the In Vitro Meat Consortium.

Update: After posting, I saw these posts at vegan.com, one of which linked to a more detailed article at Wired.

Here is a very good link FutureFood about the status quo of cultured meat (in-vitro-meat) research, but also about possibilities to lift vegetarian meat to higher levels of acceptance. Maybe an inspiration for the future?!
