I’m planning to give more educational information in different formats. I’d like to hear your opinion about what kind of info you want to see here and maybe suggest some resources.

Today is stem cell basics – historical overview of phenotype dissection of hematopoietic stem cells.

criteria of enrollment:
species: mice
organ: bone marrow
detection: by antibody to surface molecules (phenotype) by flow cytomentry

LSK = Lineage-negative (lin-), Sca-1+, c-Kit+ cells

Hello Axel,

As I have just started my research in this field, I found this post very useful.
I encourage you to post more in this direction.

I am attending our journal clubs without having a hint where to start from. Everyone in my group is talking so professionally. So, thank you very much.
