Cancer scientists at the National Centre for Cell Sciences in Pune, India, have manipulated data, according to an independent ethics watchdog.
In a report released last week (28 April), the Delhi-based Society For Scientific Values (SSV) said an entire research team was "guilty of misconduct for falsification/fabrication of data" in two papers published in the Journal of Biological Chemistry (JBC) in 2004 and 2005.
The journal withdrew the scientists' papers in February 2007 amid allegations of data manipulation.
