Introducing the Technology Features
These editorially-independent features, published in the Nature and Nature Methods print journals and online on nature.com, spotlight scientists, the technology, and the methods they choose – their views of what works and what does not – providing key information that scientists globally can implement in their own labs.
25 Technology Features are being published in Nature and Nature Methods throughout 2020, and in September, Nature is publishing its next Technology Feature on Stem Cells.
‘Cellular menagerie: Stem cells from non-model species‘
Stem cells are undifferentiated cells with the ability to develop into nerves, muscle, skin or any other kind of cell found in an animal’s body. Cells in adult tissues lose this trait, known as pluripotency. But many kinds of cells can be urged back to a stem-like state by treating them with just four genes, opening doors for both basic and clinical research. These so-called induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells are commonly made from mice, rat or human tissues. Now, researchers are applying the same technology to “non-model” species, including dolphins and squirrels, even extinct rhinos. The resulting tools can aid studies of color perception, cancer biology, conservation, and more.
The Technology Feature will cover:
- How to make non-model iPS cells
- Opportunities and challenges
- Research applications
