Adult stem cells call the shots when it comes to their daughters' destinies.
HHMI researchers identify stem cells in the gut of the fruit fly—a finding that may lead to new insights into digestive diseases and intestinal cancers.
Researchers have induced differentiating cells to revert to being stem cells. Their achievement with the fruit fly suggests that de-differentiation should be explored as a route to generating stem cells for therapeutic purposes.
HHMI researchers begin to understand how somatic cells may be reprogrammed to become stem cells.
Researchers unveil the complete genetic sequence of one of the workhorses of modern biology.
HHMI researchers believe their technique can be used to determine the function of all of the fruit fly's genes.
