... 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) ...
