This case provides a wonderful opportunity to discuss scientific integrity and scientific misconduct with both undergraduate and graduate science students. This article explains the scientific data at the heart of this case of fraud, as well as discusses the numerous ethical issues surrounding this case, including the responsibility of research supervisors as well as the scientific community.
