This revised edition provides up-to-date protocols developed in the HSC field. A team of leading researchers supply this volume with in-depth, readily reproducible methods for effective characterization of HSC and their developmental potential. The book provides detailed flow cytometry protocols for thorough analysis of enriched HSC populations, and offers a variety of transplantation approaches to measure HSC function in vivo. This is a much needed technical resource in the critically important field of stem cell investigation.
