Re-Write The Textbooks: Key Genetic Phenomenon Shown To Be Different Than Believed

You don't think they get rewritten? Ever heard of new editions? We're not reading the same science books that were used in the 1920s.
It'll likely be included in the "2010" editions of the latest textbook. Hell, my Virology and Immunology textbooks are already outdated, and they're just two years old!
And the techniques in my biochemistry textbook? Many are already obsolete.
I remember reading, that at the current rate of advancement, bleeding-edge textbooks become obsolete every three years. I had to learn things about HIV that we simply didn't know in 2008 this past spring.
Science is always being fine tuned, with each new discovery comes new facts which alter our assumptions based on the older facts. Without this evolutionary process in science we wouldn't go anywhere.
