Cell Therapy Gets Boost Using Algorithm to Optimize Lab Culture Media

Scientists at Duke-NUS Medical School, Singapore, and Monash University, Australia, say they have devised an algorithm that can predict what molecules are needed to keep cells healthy in laboratory cultures. They developed a computational approach (EpiMogrify) that reportedly can predict the molecules needed to signal stem cells to change into specific tissue cells, which can help accelerate treatments that require growing patient cells in the lab.
