A fundamental property of hematopoetic stem cells is their capacity to self-renew, thus providing, in principle, a limitless source of daughter cells and with the same functional properties. This volume presents the most recent developments, and their clinical implications, in hematopoietic stem cell research. The field of hematopoietic stem cell biology is rapidly advancing and new ideas and concepts supported by new technologies provide new discoveries. Topics covered are genetic and epigenetic regulation of stem cells, stem cell plasticity, stem cell regulation and self-renewal, and embryonic stem cells as well as malignant stem cell biology.
