Culturing cell lines and stimulating stem cells to differentiate

Cell culture is a term that refers to the growth and maintenance of cells in a controlled environment outside of an organism. A successful stem cell culture is one that keeps the cell healthy, dividing, and unspecialized. The culturing of stem cells is the first step in establishing a stem cell line-a propogating collection of genetically identical cells. Cell lines are important because they provide a long-term supply of multiplying cells that can be shared among scientists for research and therapy.
