Stem Cells and Cell division?

... Cells (Cell specialization) and Cell Division (Mitosis), however I am unsure of where their applications lie. I am well aware of the function of embryonic stem cells (As I know that Cell Specialization must occur in order for all our vitals and tissues to be formed). However, somatic (Adult tissue) ...

Gene knockdowns in the wasp Nasonia vitripennis

This paper describes gene knockdowns in the wasp Nasonia vitripennis by Morpholino antisense oligos, delivered by microinjection. Dual mode of embryonic development is highlighted by expression and function of Nasonia pair-rule genes. Rosenberg MI, Brent AE, Payre F, Desplan C. eLife. 2014;3:e01440 ...

Why must we avert the genome of Eden?

... even more redundant coding is genetically possible for reducing the loss of information. The process of evolution could have gone a similar way as embryonic stem cells are differentiated into different cell types, by genetic expressions. The ingenuity of eukaryote genome continuously impresses ...
