||P.135 bottom paragraph: "On an organismal level, humans and mice differ in lifespan by a factor of 30–50, size and total cellularity by a factor of 3000, and number of cell divisions throughout life by a factor of 10^5 [primary source]. Furthermore, murine cells have a higher basal metabolic rate and display profound differences in telomere biology, which directly affect the aging process [refs 15,79]. It remains an open question whether these complex differences can be incorporated into computational models attempting to quantify human T cell development."
