Understanding Stem Cells part 9

Stem cell 5

 

When the blastocyst is used for stem cell research, scientists remove the inner cell mass and place these cells in a culture dish with a nutrient-rich liquid where they give rise to embryonic stem cells. Embryonic stem cells seem to be more flexible than stem cells found in adults, because they have the potential to produce every cell type in the human body. They are also generally easier to collect, purify and maintain in the laboratory than adult stem cells.
