Added library resources template[edit]

Hi, since this is a popular topic for student essays, I added a library resources template. If it is disliked, it can be deleted. I won't be offended. Pangurban22 (talk) 19:55, 27 July 2016 (UTC)

Page protection[edit]

Request edit on 19 November 2016[edit]


To make the first section clearer id suggest:

Broadly, there are two types of stem cell. Tissue stem cells are found in various places of the body and enable growth, repair and renewal of tissues and organs. Embryonic stem cells are generated in the lab from cells of the early embryo (4-6 days old depending on the organism)

As it stands, it implys that embryonic stem cells are found in mammals, which they aren't; they are grown in the lab from cells of a mammal embryo. Using the definition of self renewal, stem cells aren't found in the early embryo - they dont self renew, just differentiate. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Endoderm (talkcontribs) 13:55, 30 November 2016 (UTC)

It was a really interesting article, the stem cell I think is the great hope for people who suffer from common diseases such as diabetes. Something that blows my mind when I read that males have more adult stem cells in their bone marrow than female during their reproductive years. I also amazed by the huge number of the references.
