Predicting the fate of stem cells: New method decodes cell movements, accurately predicts how cells will divide

Monday, March 1, 2010 - 16:35 in Biology & Nature

Researchers 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, scientists can successfully forecast how a stem cell will split and what key characteristics the daughter cells will exhibit.
