Researchers Reveal How Cells Know Their Future and Forget Their Past
News   Nov 08, 2019

All cells in the body contain the same genetic material. The difference between cells therefore depends solely on which genes are "turned on". Now, researchers have gained new insights into how genes are turned on and off and how the cells “forget their past”. This new knowledge will be crucial for stem cell therapy and potentially treating people with cancer.
