In focus: embryonic stem cells

This month, we are focusing on embryonic stem cells; access exclusive interviews, infographics, journal content and more.

Embryonic stem cells (ESCs) were first cultured in 1981 and remain a fixture in the field with around 2000 papers published on them each year since 2012. But why are they so popular and how can you get the most out of your cells?

In this editorial feature, we’ve partnered with Takara Bio to bring you the latest understanding and insight into using ESCs in your academic and clinical research.

In this editorial feature, we will discuss best practice and top techniques with leading experts in the field, as well as debate possible future developments. For more information, check out the exclusive content below, or learn more with Takara Bio.
