    In the scene where Cosima talks to her geeky lab friend who sequenced the DNA samples for her, they mention an anomalous "cytochrome c". A quick wiki search shows that cytochrome c is somehow involved in cell regeneration (as in the case of the fast-healing Kira and even maybe Helena) and cell apoptosis (or cell death, which may explain the respiratory disease the German and Cosima were/are experiencing).
