Latest Somatic cell nuclear transfer Stories
What exactly is human genetic engineering? It’s a simple question with a complex answer.
A new separation process that depends on an easily-distinguished physical difference in adhesive forces among cells could help expand production of stem cells generated through cell reprogramming. By facilitating new research, the separation process could also lead to improvements in the reprogramming technique itself and help scientists model certain disease processes.
A Japanese research team was able to produce healthy mouse clones able to live a normal lifespan. Unlike previous cloning endeavors, however, these mice can be sequentially cloned indefinitely.
In a landmark decision, the Supreme Court announced on Monday that it would not hear an appeal from two scientists attempting to derail government-funded research with embryonic stem cells.
A new study by researchers at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) has discovered two adult stem cell-like subpopulations in adult human skin.
With the potential of replacing defective or damaged cells resulting from disorders and injuries, stem cells are of great interest, leading to a variety of new regenerative therapies.
