Gene Expression: A Snapshot of Stem Cell Development
New genes found that regulate development of stem cells.
Tissue-Engineered Colon from Human Cells
A study by scientists at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles has shown that tissue-engineered colon derived from human cells is able to develop the many specialized nerves required for function, mimicking the neuronal population found in native colon.
Tension Helps Heart Cells Develop Normally in the Lab
Stanford engineers have uncovered the important role tension plays in growing heart cells out of the body.
Urine Excretion From Stem Cell-Derived Kidneys
Researchers report a strategy for enabling urine excretion from kidneys grown from stem cells.
Stem Cell Research Hints at Evolution of Human Brain
Researchers at UC San Francisco have succeeded in mapping the genetic signature of a unique group of stem cells in the human brain that seem to generate most of the neurons in our massive cerebral cortex.
The Final Word on STAP
Researchers fail to replicate STAP study; computational analysis reveals genomic inconsistency.
CRI Scientists See Through Bones
Findings uncover new details about blood-forming stem cells.
Scientists Sequence Genome Of Worm That Can Regrow Body Parts
Worm’s genome could lead to better understanding of its regenerative prowess and advance stem cell biology.
Stem Cell-Derived 'Organoids' Help Predict Neural Toxicity
A new system developed by scientists may provide a faster, cheaper and more biologically relevant way to screen drugs and chemicals that could harm the developing brain.
New Way To Repair Nerves
Tufts University biomedical engineers recently published the first report of a promising new way to induce human mesenchymal stem cells to differentiate into neuron-like cells:treating them with exosomes.

Methods in Biobanking

Joakim Dillner (Editor), published by Springer
ISBN: 9781588299956

International biobank collaborations allow for studies with large number of subjects where generalizability of findings across populations can be investigated, which means establishing quality criteria concerning the nature of the sample, conditions of sample storage, and the adequacy of available information is of vital importance. Methods in Biobanking brings together contributions from experts in the field in order to aid in the establishment of this much needed consistency. The volume discusses how to use existing collections of biological material to answer significant questions concerning the cause of disease without violating the personal integrity of participating sample donors, the ethical issues surrounding biobanks, guidelines for the use of coding systems and the use of biocomputing and registry linkages in research projects, as well as many other key subjects. As a volume in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology™ series, this collection provides the kind of detailed description and implementation advice that is crucial for getting optimal results. Authoritative and cutting-edge, Methods in Biobanking seeks to provide scientists with the tools necessary to take advantage of the tremendous current resources of the world’s biobanks and strengthen those resources for the future.
