Telomeres open a window on stem cell division

Elife. 2016 Jan 25;5:e12481. doi: 10.7554/eLife.12481.

Abstract

Measuring the length distribution of telomeres can reveal information about biological processes that are otherwise difficult to analyze experimentally.

Keywords: computational biology; developmental biology; hematopoiesis; human; mathematical modelling; personalised medicine; self renewal; stem cells; systems biology; telomere length distribution.
