Pathway activity hallmarks development – not a gene expression experiment

The relationship between cells is driven by how you tell them apart Understanding development arising from stem cells using molecular profiles like gene expression microarray, genome wide methylation marks, RNASeq, and histone mark dynamics is currently our state of the … Continue reading
