In stem cell research there are several key methods that, once mastered, can be extremely powerful. These methods enable you to rigorously test hypotheses, compare results to gold standards,รน and may even spur improvements to existing protocols. This book describes numerous methods to derive, manipulate, target, and prepare stem cells for clinical use. The methods described here help you: Derive and test human embryonic stem cells; Analyze bone marrow stem cell function in vitro and in vivo; Image a stem cell transplant; Cryopreserve stem cells; Differentiate stem cells using microscale techniques.
