DanStem researchers Joshua Brickman and Sophie Morgani publish Insight paper in the scientific journal eLife on November 26, 2013.
ABSTRACT: Experiments on the social amoeba Dictyostelium discoideum show that the origins of lineage bias in this system lie in the nutritional history of individual cells. Clues to the molecular basis for this process suggest similar forces may be at work in early mammalian development.
