Predicting the Fate of Stem Cells: New Method Decodes Cell Movements, Accurately Predicts How Cells Will Divide

Monday, March 1, 2010 - 15:29 in Biology & Nature

Researchers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute have discovered a new method for predicting - with up to 99 percent accuracy - the fate of stem cells. Using advanced computer vision technology to detect subtle cell movements that are impossible to discern with the human eye, researchers can successfully forecast how a stem cell will split and what key characteristics the daughter cells will exhibit.
