Genetic stability in human embryonic stem cells (hESC): genes involved in the hESC phenotype and comparison with induced pluripotent cells

Project Details


Introduction We have derived human embryonic stem cell lines (HESC) from embryos surplus to IVF treatment or embryos shown to be affected after preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) since 2002. This project is a collaboration between the Centres for Reproductive Medicine and Medical Genetics of the UZ Brussel (University Hospital Brussels) and the Department of Embryology and Genetics of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB).
