Basics of stem cells
8 September 2016 | by zishanasadSee all my reviews

Highly recommended to understand the basics of stem cells! I found this very interesting, well this documentary is perfect to be screened in institutes and hospital for raising stem cell awareness! This is has got all the basics and research oriented topics that generates a perfect atmosphere in understanding what stem cells are from a scratch!

Starting from what embryonic stem cells are to what iPSC and how they are isolated and what they contain, how adult stem cells are and what are the pro and cons of stem cells research this documentary has everything in it! Perfect for giving an idea to non biomed people. This video can be screened right from high school level to graduate level.
