Creepiest science news of the day. I think they mean Hadassah University:
Boing Boing: Engineered spider web: "Scientists at Jerusalem's Hebrew University used synthetic biology to crank out spider web fibers in the lab. They introduced certain genes from garden spiders into a virus that was used to infect caterpillar cells. Spider fibers then formed in the cultured cells."
Note: Spider fibers formed in the cultured cells.
