Allen Cell Discussion Forum launched

A new online discussion forum offers a meeting spot for the gene-editing and stem cell research community to interact with one another and with the scientists that created the Allen Institute's fluorescently tagged human induced pluripotent stem cell (hiPSC) line collection.

New cell lines available

Five more fluorescently tagged hiPSC lines have been added to the Allen Cell Collection. The new lineup includes two new nuclear structures and three cardiomyocyte-specific structures. Find out more about the lines and how to order them on our website.

5 things we (still) don't know about cells

"We know so little about the rules that govern how our cells work, let alone how our bodies work." Cells were first discovered more than 350 years ago, yet our researchers share their thoughts on some things we still don't understand.

Website Updates September 2016

New video tutorial published on JoVE

JoVE, a scientific video methods journal, published a video protocol developed by Allen Institute researchers for tagging endogenously expressed proteins with fluorescent tags in human induced pluripotent stem cells using CRISPR/Cas9.

In case you missed it: Integrated View of the Mitotic hiPS Cell

Allen Institute for Cell Science researchers presented a research project earlier this year describing images of mitotic hiPS cells. The project includes 3D images from 14 fluorescently tagged structure lines during mitosis, allowing viewers to observe structural changes for each mitotic stage and examine their combined localizations.
