Research fraud at University of Missouri--Columbia

Page 450 of the July 27 Science carried a retraction of a paper published in 311 Science 992 (2006); one has at 317 Science 450 the text:

The corresponding author takes responsibility for placing excessive trust in his co-worker and for not assuring that a complete set of raw data existed at the time the questions first arose about the paper. (...) The first author resigned from MU (University of Missouri -- Columbia) shortly after the allegations of research misconduct were received and could not be found to sign the retraction.

The same issue of Science carries a book review of "Six Impossible Things Before Breakfast" (317 Science 456) as well as a review "Search Technologies for the Internet) (317 Science 468).
