A new benchmarking standard has been established by a team at the Broad Center of Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research. The team led an objective evaluation of different laboratory and culture techniques to determine a “gold standard” that will allow researchers evaluate the effect of culture condition on the proliferation and self-renewal properties of pluripotent stem cells by comparing in vitro conditions with the natural in vivo environment of a developing embryo.
