Quantitative stem cell papers on arXiv.org


arXiv.org is the urform of open access scientific publishing since 1992, where “formal peer review is replaced by constant peer interest.” as Quinn Norton wrote. It is is THE preprint server for scientists in physics, maths, for instance, Grisha Perelman’s million dollar proof-sketch was first published here. But did you know that there are many preprints on arXiv published in the field of quantitative biology from 1992? Within biology subject classes are: Biomolecules, Cell Behavior, Genomics, Molecular Networks, Neurons and Cognition, Other, Populations and Evolution, Quantitative Methods, Subcellular Processes, Tissues and Organs. Recently I found six papers concerning the modelling aspect of stem cell science, and let us see the titles of them in order to see what kind of quantitative aspects can be modelled concerning stem cells:

Evolutionary dynamics of adult stem cells: Comparison of random and immortal strand segregation

Smart comments on the home placenta stem cell project

I collected some critical comments worth considering on the home placenta stem cell project from Make readers. Thanks for all.

“Um hello..how many people have a whole lab set up in their home?”20+ years ago — that sentiment would be — “How many people can afford a whole computing set up in their home? (and have space)” If there’s a demand — there will be a whole lot of companies explaining why their equipment is not only cost effective, but better than their competitors :P
