Dr. Alex Meissner, Assistant Professor at the Department of Stem Cell Research and Regenerative Biology at Harvard University, discusses how next generation sequencing has revolutionized the way we look at stem cells and perform stem cell research.

In the below video, Dr. Meissner focuses the conversation on the challenges of interpreting genome wide data to provide stem cells with the right cues for efficient proliferation and differentiation and how the resulting cell models can be used to improve compound screening and cell therapy research applications.
