Human cell Breakthrough could Lead to New Treatments

Scientists have developed a system that predicts how to transform any human cell type to another directly, a breakthrough that may lead to new treatments for a variety of conditions such as arthritis and heart disease. “The barrier to progress in this field is the very limited types of cells scientists are able to produce. Our system, Mogrify, is a bioinformatics resource that will allow experimental biologists to bypass the need to create stem cells,” said Julian Gough from the University of Bristol.
