Context:

This is the first demonstration of hair cell regeneration in an adult mammal. "We're excited about these results because they are a step forward in the biology of regeneration and prove that mammalian hair cells have the capacity to regenerate," Dr. Edge said. "With more research, we think that regeneration of hair cells opens the door to potential therapeutic applications in deafness."

@oristarA,
Those groups of letters are just portions of reference numbers. They don't necessarily "stand for" anything.

@oristarA,
This is purely a guess, but RO might be their internal reference for those documents. Possibly it could mean Requirement Order...Request Order...or something that organization uses to indicate a library reference to a grant or proposal.

DC could stand for reference to a document or doc change. P30 might mean page 30 of that doc.

However, none of this is important for general understanding.. but it's merely to refer to the document in the library database.

Letters in reference numbers may, or may not indicate anything. Where I work (a legal/financial environment) we have case numbers like ABZ 126778 and CRY 22355. The letters mean nothing. Well, they do in a way, because AB cases are a certain kind and CR cases are another kind, but the letters themselves are not abbreviations or initialisms.

I would guess, considering the second reference starts with R21, that the first might follow the same format, in which case it would not be, as you have it, R-the letter O-1, but rather R-zero-1.

Never mind. I looked at the original and it clearly is the letter O. Shot down again.
