Organoids – Mini organs in a dish

Organoid models include three-dimensional (3D) cell culture systems that closely resemble the in vivo organ or tissue from which they are derived. These 3D systems replicate the complex spatial morphology of a differentiated tissue, and allow biologically relevant...

Stem Cells: Links to Human Cancer and Aging

The human body develops from a single diploid cell called a zygote and contains at adulthood an estimated 85 trillion cells, of which more than 150 billion turn over every day. All of these cells originate from a tiny population of so-called "embryonic" and "adult"...

What is Clean meat Clean meat is meat that is obtained through in-vitro culture growth, rather than from living animals. This type of meat is also known by various alternative names, such as "Cultured Meat" "Artificial Meat" "In-vitro Meat" and "Cell-grown meat" to...

Improve your CRISPR Gene Editing with Small Molecules

Currently, there is a trade-off with CRISPR: technology is very precise, but it is also quite inefficient. Recent studies demonstrated an improvement to this system by introducing small molecules that are able to maintain the precision fo the technology while boosting...
