Integrated Mitotic Cell

Introducing the Integrated Mitotic Stem Cell

This week, we released the Integrated Mitotic Stem Cell, a data-driven model and visualization tool that captures — for the first time — a holistic view of human cell division in a noncancerous epithelial cell. The release includes two viewers to explore the computational model as well as a collection of the images of dividing cells that went into its creation.

Cardiomyocytes

A method to tag genes that turn on late during differentiation — making beating human heart cells glow

Allen Institute for Cell Science researchers have developed a new method, described in a study published last month, to label genes that turn on late during the differentiation of human induced pluripotent stem cells, or hiPS cells.

Dual Tagged Lines

Four new hiPS cell lines available

The Allen Cell Collection has four new fluorescently tagged cell lines available: the new lines tag muscle actin filaments, a pluripotent transcription factor, two nucleolar structures, and a control line. All lines in the Allen Cell Collection are now available for non-profit or commercial research use.
