Answering the Question: What Will Stem Cells Become?

Published by at 8:09 pm under Uncategorized

Hey Guys! So Dr. Adair showed this awesome link today in class which discusses some recent uses of biotechnology. I read this article on stem cell techniques, and I thought it’d be worth sharing on our blog. Here’s the link-¬†http://www.genengnews.com/gen-news-highlights/answering-the-question-what-will-stem-cells-become/81249012/.

This article talks about a technique that was developed by the scientists at the University of Toronto. This new technique has the potential to rapidly screen stem cells to control what they will turn into in the future. The technology can be used in regenerative medicine and drug development; it can also give a better understanding of how to turn stem cells into clinically useful cell types. Science is amazing!
