Computational Strategies for Niche-Dependent Cell Conversion to Assist Stem Cell Therapy

Trends in Biotechnology 2019 February 16
The field of regenerative medicine has blossomed in recent decades. However, the ultimate goal of tissue regeneration - replacing damaged or aged cells with healthy functioning cells - still faces a number of challenges. In particular, better understanding of the role of the cellular niche in shaping stem cell phenotype and conversion would aid in improving current protocols for stem cell therapies. In this regard, the implementation of novel computational approaches that consider the niche effect on stem cells would be valuable. Here we discuss current problems in stem cell transplantation and rejuvenation, and we propose computational strategies to control niche-dependent cell conversion to overcome them.

Use Boolean operators: AND/OR

diabetic AND foot
diabetes OR diabetic

Exclude a word using the 'minus' sign

Virchow -triad

Use Parentheses

water AND (cup OR glass)

Add an asterisk (*) at end of a word to include word stems

Neuro* will search for Neurology, Neuroscientist, Neurological, and so on

Use quotes to search for an exact phrase
