ABSTRACT
The article reports that California's citizens have changed the landscape of a key area of biology with intriguing implications for everyone else. A large sum of money ($300 million annually for ten years), the promise of new buildings, a state research institute dedicated to the field and a constitutional guarantee of the right to do the work all sailed through in a referendum last week. Current limitations on federal funding for the research mean that there are relatively few groups already working with human embryonic stem-cell lines in California.

    Induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells may be of use in regenerative medicine. However, the low efficiency of reprogramming is a major impediment to the generation of patient-specific iPS cell lines. Here we report the first selection system for the isolation of human iPS cells. We developed the...

    Background: Human embryonic stem cells exhibit genomic instability that can be related to culture duration or to the passaging methods used for cell dissociation. In order to study the impact of cell dissociation techniques on human embryonic stem cells genomic instability, we cultured H1 and H9...

    We report the characterization of a highly germline competent C57BL/6N mouse embryonic stem cell line, JM8. To simplify breeding schemes, the dominant agouti coat color gene was restored in JM8 cells by targeted repair of the C57BL/6 nonagouti mutation. These cells provide a robust foundation...

    The article offers insights into embryonic stem cell research. Embryonic stem cells are extracted from a blastocyst, thereby destroying the embryo. Studies shows that stem-cell lines can be grown from less developed embryos and the process could leave them unscarred. It opens up new possiblities...
