Current Protocols in Stem Cell Biology is divided into three parts:
- Embryonic Stem Cells - covers 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 - includes the isolation of progenitor stem cells from differentiated tissues, their characterization, and differentiation.
- Genetic Manipulation of Stem Cells - provides tools for manipulating the genetic content of stem cells and for marking stem cells.
Updated continually, this product will add new methods and ideas as the field expands. It employs the standardized presentation and format that has made Current Protocols the most respected source of methods for twenty years.
