In lab this past week, we considered both stem cells as well as genes related to the spinal column - together, these are evidence that very basic studies of individual genes can often lead to useful results! And, we will talk more about this specific kind of stem cells (induced pluripotent stem cells) in an upcoming lab...
Have a great weekend -
