A thematic series in Cell Regeneration.
Stem cells are able to differentiate into specialized cell types, so have become a functional platform for the study and treatment of disease. Advances in gene editing technology such as zinc-finger nucleases (ZFNs), transcription activator-like effector nucleases (TALENs), particularly the CRISPR/Cas9 system, have had a great impact on basic science, medical application. The combination of these two technologies holds great promise for more accurate disease models and precise cell therapies.
To present the recent advances in the technology and application of gene editing and stem cells, Cell Regeneration invite you and/or members of your research team to submit manuscript(s) for this special issue including original research articles, methodology articles, resource articles, commentary articles, review articles, and more.
