An international team led by scientists describe successfully grafting stem cell (iPSC)-derived neural precursor cells back into the spinal cords of genetically identical adult pigs with no immunosuppression efforts.
State University will host a national center of excellence devoted to understanding the genomic, or molecular, mechanisms that govern important genetic traits in swine such as growth and disease resistance.
