Stem Cell Technique Could Regenerate Any Human Tissue Damaged By Aging or Disease - A team led by the University of New South Wales says that a stem cell therapy capable of regenerating any human tissue could be available within a few years.
In a world first, Australian scientists have figured out how to reprogram adult bone or fat cells to form stem cells that could potentially regenerate any damaged tissue in the body. The researchers were inspired by the way salamanders are able to.
Institute of Medical Genetics and Human Genetics (IMGHG) - The Computational Biology and Bioinformatics (CBB) group at the Institute of Medical Genetics at Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin develops algorithms and applications in the field of Gene Ontology, Phenotypic Analysis, Machine Learning, and modeling of biological networks with the tools of linear algebra and graph theory.
A microscopic view shows a colony of human embryonic stem cells (light blue) growing on fibroblasts (dark blue). The Catholic Church has long opposed embryonic stem-cell research because it relies on the destruction of human embryos.
