Current Protocols in Stem Cell Biology (CPSC) covers the most fundamental protocols and methods in the rapidly growing field of stem cell biology. It will cover 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 extraembryonic 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.
