Researchers provide road map for generating B cells from stem cells
..."There's no denying it." At each stage, different markers
or receptors appear on the cell surface, which helps the researchers monitor a cell's progress and enables the cell to reach the next stage. "To make real use of stem cells we will have to assemble genetic regulatory networks such as this for each ce...
