Finding the Founder Cells: Determining the Origin of Pluripotency In Vitro

In the lab, stem cells begin their life in a cell culture dish by first assembling into organised colonies. This particular colony architecture is re-established every time the cells are subdivided and expanded. However, why and how this occurs has been a mystery, until now.  Recently published research involving ARMI scientists has found a distinct […]
