Whitehead Scientists Bring New Efficiency to Stem Cell Reprogramming
September 13, 2012
New genetic markers identified by researchers at Whitehead Institute and Massachusetts Institute of Technology could help make the process for reprogramming regular body cells into pluripotent stem cells more efficient, allowing scientists to predict which treated cells will successfully become pluripotent.
