This second edition volume expands on the previous edition with updated discussions on new genetic, molecular, and cellular methods used to study somatic stem cells. The chapters in this book focus on the isolation, classification, purity, and plasticity of these stem cells in a variety of organic tissues. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.
Cutting-edge and comprehensive, Somatic Stem Cells: Methods and Protocols, Second Edition is a valuable resource for both novice and experienced molecular biologists, developmental biologists, tissue engineers, and geneticists who are interested in stem cell research and its potentials in regenerative medicine.
