What's New in Current Protocols in Stem Cell
Supplement 30, August 2014
Published in affiliation with the International Society for Stem Cell Research (ISSCR), Current Protocols in Stem Cell Biology covers the most fundamental protocols and methods in the rapidly growing field of stem cell biology. Designed to help researchers realize the potential of stem cells for improving human health, the protocols include basic and emerging technologies for the analysis of stem cells, as well as the processes underlying differentiation and development.
A subscription gives you access to all the content in the collection plus four quarterly issues of new and updated content. Current Protocols in Stem Cell Biology covers research in...
- embryonic stem cells: methods for isolation of stem cells from a variety of model organisms and humans, characterization of these cells and the undifferentiated state, induction of differentiation into cells of the mesodermal, endodermal, ectodermal, and extra-embryonic lineages, and molecular and functional characterization of the differentiated state.
- adult stem cells: isolation of progenitor stem cells from differentiated tissues, their characterization, and differentiation
- genetic manipulation of stem cells: tools for manipulating the genetic content of stem cells and for marking stem cells.
