ABSTRACT
The article highlights a study reporting extensive transcriptomic, epigenomic and proteomic analyses of reprogramming, revealing the existence of several reprogramming routes and showing that induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells exist in multiple unique cell states. The studies provide a comprehensive analysis of the progressive molecular changes that occur during reprogramming, and should enable researchers to manipulate this process more efficiently.
